Fresno Co. crash punctures gas line

Saturday, July 16, 2011

A car crash in Fresno County punctured a gas line and caused evacuations Saturday morning.

The California Highway Patrol says the car veered off the road outside Parlier near Dinuba and Bethel. It then went through a fence and hit a gas line rupturing it.

The four people in the car received minor injuries. Two homes in the area were evacuated as a precaution while crews worked to cap the gas line. The cause of the crash is under investigation but alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
