MARTINEZ, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Portions of Columbia Road in Martinez were blocked off for about five hours after a gas leak.

Columbia County dispatch says around 6 a.m., a vehicle struck a gas line near Columbia Road and Tudor Branch Road.

No injuries were reported in the accident, but it led to the road from the intersection with Hereford Farm Road to the intersection with South Old Belair Road being shut down.

Three nearby homes were also evacuated out of precaution.

Deputies set up a detour while crews cleaned up the scene.

We’re told all lanes on Columbia Road are back open.
