Car hits 1,000 pound propane tank; no injuries
The accident tore apart pipes leading from the tank, as well as a twin tank next to it, to apartments, causing a propane leak, said city District Fire Chief Michael Gamache.
Firefighters capped the broken line, stopping the leak after about 15 minutes, he said. There were no injuries in the accident. Police said the driver, Christopher Stark, who lives at the complex, was not charged.
“I thought that should be better insulated for a long time,” Goode said. “They should have barriers protecting them.”
