HYANNIS, MASSACHUSETTS – [HN VIDEO NOTES] – Hyannis firefighters and Barnstable police rushed to Hinckley Road after a car slammed into a home and ruptured a natural gas line last evening, at around 8:33 p.m. All occupants had evacuated the home and there were no reported injuries. A first responder on the scene said the brakes on the out-of-control vehicle were said to be not working properly… There was a smell of leaking natural gas in the vicinity and National Grid was immediately informed of the emergency. Shutting off the flow of natural gas turned out to be complicated as workers first needed to locate the line and underground shut-off. Additional National Grid crews arrived and excavated above an in-ground shut-off valve. Once the gas leak was shut down, a tow truck operator carefully pulled the vehicle away from the mangled gas meter. It took over two hours to finally make the scene safe. The home was left with a gaping hole in an outer wall…  and the gas supply needed to remain shut off until repairs could be made. The Barnstable Police Department is investigating the cause of the crash. All first responders had cleared the scene by 11:00 p.m. The following HN Video and images highlight the scene… [HN VIDEO – PRESS PLAY] RECENT RANDOM HN PHOTOS: A colorful morning sky at Kalmus Beach, Hyannis…   A mechanical issue allegedly caused a Hyannis commuter to drive over a West Main Street sidewalk and ram into an old Oldsmobile Cutlass, before crashing into a nearby wooded area last week…. the driver was not injured…         “A little too early for the sauce…”  An elderly woman was recently arrested for drunk driving during the morning commute in Hyannis.   Her license had already been suspended for another, separate drunk driving charge…   And her little scrappy dog was also taken into custody… and apparently wasn’t too thrilled about the whole thing…   Police had a word with a woman accused of openly urinating outside of her vehicle on West Main Street, Hyannis the other day.  A number of onlookers appeared concerned…   Barnstable Police investigated a crash where a commercial truck left the roadway and crashed into a couple of cars on Center Street, Hyannis the other evening…  One person was transported to CCH for evaluation… no arrests were made…         Please remain “chill…”  drive defensively…  and remember to have a splendiferous Cape Cod Friday!
