State Road 11 re-opens after brief gas leak

Police closed State Road 11 between Interstate 65 and Redding Road north of Seymour for about an hour Tuesday afternoon because of a possible natural gas leak.

County Officer Darin Downs said shortly after 5 p.m. that a Vectren Energy crew had arrived at the company's station just north of the East Fork White River and repaired the issue quickly.

"A tank containing a chemical used to cool the main tank was leaking," Downs said.

A passerby reported a potential problem at the station at 4:06 p.m. Tuesday.
