Two-car crash breaks gas line, causes evacuation

SOUTH MILWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) — Residents in a South Milwaukee neighborhood have been evacuated after a traffic accident caused a gas line to break at a house.

The Journal Sentinel reports the two-car crash was reported around 4 p.m. Monday.

The South Milwaukee Police Department says a driver accidentally stepped on the accelerator pedal instead of the brake before crashing into the house.

One driver was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

Residents were allowed to return to their home about 90 minutes after they were evacuated.
