Varney Street residents evacuated after car hits gas line

MANCHESTER — Police said there were no injuries when a vehicle struck a house on Varney Street just after 5 a.m. Wednesday, but the residents were evacuated as a precaution because of damage to a gas line.

Police Lt. Maureen Tessier said the gas was quickly shut off and residents were allowed to return. Tessier said there was no structural damage to the house, which was struck on the west side where the gas and electrical lines were located.

She said a 2006 Chevy Impala driven by Deborah Clark, 52, of 9 Pinard St., slid on ice as Clark was negotiating a turn and went over a snowbank and hit the house. The vehicle had to be towed from the scene. No summons was issued, although Tessier said Clark likely was driving too fast for conditions.
