Small Gas Leak Forces Businesses To Evacuate

Posted by: KLKN Newsroom

Lincoln police say a small gas leak near 43rd and O Street Thursday morning forced employees in some nearby businesses to evacuate for a short while.

They say a gas line ruptured around 7 am after a traffic accident.  Officials report one car involved in the accident drove up on the curb and hit the line.

The gas was shut off in the area so crews can fix the leak.  Traffic slowed down for a bit during rush hour.
