Several homes on Columbia Road and at the entrance to Tudor Branch subdivision were evacuated early this morning due to a gas leak.

The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office says a vehicle hit a gas line around 6:00 a.m. causing the leak.  No one was injured in the accident.

Authorities had to shut down a portion of Columbia Road at Hereford Farm Road and at South Belair Road until the leak is repaired.

Detours are still in place.
