A natural gas leak caused by a car accident in Bossier City Wednesday afternoon has been sealed, and the road where it happened is back open to traffic.
A car plowed into a gas meter in the 2200 block of Brownlee Rd, just east of the intersection with Benton Road, shortly after 3 p.m.
The driver of the car was not hurt, but police had to block both lanes of Brownlee Road until crews from Centerpoint Energy could arrive and seal the leak.
Bossier Police spokesperson Mark Natale says officers moved to evacuate two nearby homes, but it turned out no one was home anyway.
The leak was sealed, the wrecked car removed and the road re-opened within an hour.
