Staff Report

A one vehicle accident in the 2200 block of U.S. Highway 641 North near Marshall County High School resulted in a brief closure of a portion of the road earlier this morning.

A car apparently ran off the roadway and struck a gas line before coming to rest in a ditch.

We currently have no information on injuries to the driver of the vehicle.

According to Kelly Collins, Benton Gas manager, a crew is currently on the scene repairing the line and there is no danger to anyone in the area.

The roadway reopened a short time ago.

The Marshall County Sheriff's Department and Palma Briensburg Fire Department responded to the scene.
