Six Nations First Responders avert crisis; live downed hydro lines next to gas leak
One man is lucky to be alive after the SUV he was driving rolled over and hit a sign outside Big Six Gas & Convenience on Sunday morning.
Six Nations Fire and Emergency Services said damage to the sign during the crash left a hydro line exposed near the vehicle – which had a significant fuel leak and was also sitting on top of an underground fuel tank.
Six Nations First Responders were quick to attend the scene, evacuating gas station employees and securing a 1000 foot perimeter around the station.
Hamilton Fire Department’s Hazmat Team were called in for assistance. The area was brought under control and Fourth Line re-opened just after 1pm.
The driver was not hurt.
