Driver smashes into garage, hits gas meter
Just before 10:30 a.m. Saturday, a driver smashed into a South Bend garage and hit a gas meter. Police and firefighters responded to the scene in the 5900 block of South Miami Street.
As a precaution, NIPSCO evacuated at least three homes while crews worked to shut off the gas line.
Witnesses say that female driver may have suffered from a medical condition just before the accident. That driver was transported to the hospital. Her exact injuries are not known but officers say they did not appear to be life threatening.
