Gas leak prompts evacuation in Henrico

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Crews have finished testing the gas level in each unit at the Hamlet Condominiums and have allowed residents to return to their homes.

The two hour evacuation started around 9:40 Tuesday morning when a motorist hit a gas meter causing a significant gas leak.

45 homes were evacuated as utility crews cut-off the fuel.

It's unclear what caused that motorist to hit that gas meter though no one was injured in the crash.
