Car crushes gas meter in Old First Ward

A gas line was severed Sunday afternoon when a car crashed against a house at Hamburg and Miami streets in Buffalo’s Old First Ward neighborhood.

A collision between a sport utility vehicle and a four-door sedan ended up with the sedan crushing a gas meter on the side of the house at 204 Hamburg St.

The accident happened around 3:30 p.m. Gas hissed loudly from the line for several minutes, until Buffalo firefighters and crews from National Fuel were able to move the car and to cap the line.

No one was seriously injured.
