OKLAHOMA CITY – On Wednesday afternoon, a few Oklahoma City residents and businesses had their gas line shut down because of a leak.

Crews rushed to the area of Memorial Rd. and May Ave. around 2:30 p.m.

Authorities say a construction crew accidentally cut through a gas line.

Oklahoma City firefighters brought a truck to the area and hooked it up to a fire hydrant as a precaution.

Officers shut down southbound N.W. 150th St. for a short time while crews worked on the line.

Fortunately, now the road is back open.
