Car Hits Gas Line, 10 Homes Evacuated

A scary situation in a Rockford neighborhood tonight as a car swerves off the road, slams into two homes and ruptures a gas line.

It happened on the 500 block of Whitman Street just after 7:00 tonight. Fire officials, Nicor Gas and Rockford Police were all called to the scene. Police say ten homes had to be evacuated because of the gas leak. Luckily, no one was hurt. Right now the leak has been fixed and everyone is allowed back into their homes.
