Police and firefighters responded at around noon Wednesday to the leak at the intersection of Chapel Road and Hewitt Drive.

The crash sent the Postal Service careening into a meter and a 6-inch control valve, which broke.

Firefighters were able to locate a valve to shut off the gas flow, but remained at the scene.

No one was injured and there were no major evacuations, an officer a the scene said.
