Emergency crews responded Tuesday evening to reports that a natural gas line had been ruptured.

Responding police officers blocked traffic near the area and a hazardous materials unit was called for. The gas line that was struck was reportedly a high-pressure line and a rupture was confirmed.

The driver of the vehicle was not injured.
