Gas Line Rupture in Sacramento Causes Massive Traffic Jam
A gas line rupture following a single-vehicle collision at Arden Way and Heritage Lane resulted in an injury to the driver sometime before 7:20 the morning of January 9 and caused long traffic delays throughout the area. The accident occurred outside Arden Fair Mall when the driver, for unknown reasons, ran into a pipeline that carries natural gas, causing it to rupture. All the Arden Way lanes were shut down to traffic from Ethan Way to Harvard Street as workers with PG&E arrived to contain the gas leak, and clean up was commenced. It was about 8:45 before the gas could be shut off.
