A portion of a road in Cambria County was closed for over an hour Thursday evening after a School Bus crashed into a gas main. Officials on scene tell us no kids were on the bus, it was empty other than the driver and no injuries were reported. They pulled the Bus out from where it crashed and Goucher Street was reopened.
Video shows that the roadway was closed between Harshberger Road and Sell Street because of the incident. We spoke with Assistant Fire Chief Dan Conway with the Upper Yoder Volunteer Fire Company. Police evacuated from the 700 to 728 Blocks on Goucher Street. That’s about 9 homes. They were just told to leave temporarily until they can get the gas shut down. Hiram G. Andrews on the other side of the Street was not evacuated. People’s Natural Gas was on scene taking over so they could make their repairs.
Police continue to investigate.
