CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII-NEWS) - Residents inside an apartment complex had to be evacuated after a truck hit a gas meter.
The incident happened around 4:00 pm Sunday afternoon outside of an apartment complex at Ayers and Joyce street. According to an apartment manager, when he heard the crash, he evacuated his residents because the strong smell of gas filled the area.
When police arrived, they advised Corpus Christi natural gas employees to cap the line.
The gas line was successfully capped just an hour later.
