The City of Killeen was advising residents to avoid the area of Stan Schlueter from WS Young Drive to Trimmier Road due a gas leak.

Around 10:22 AM, one of our employees who lives in Killeen received an alert via text message warning her of the leak:

Attention: There has been a gas leak accident in your area of Killeen. Please avoid Stan Schluter (sic) from WS Young to Trimmier. If you live in the area go inside and close your windows!

In a Facebook live report from near the scene (embedded below), Killeen Daily Herald reporter Lauren Dodd said a car had rolled. Dodd said ATMOS was on the scene, and that roads had been closed between Trimmier, Stan Schleuter, and Lion's Club Park. Dodd said nearby businesses had been evacuated, and that  no injuries had been reported as of the time of her report.

The City of Killeen has advised the public was being advised to avoid the area, so if your daily route takes you through that area, please find a way around until repairs are complete. People living and working nearby were asked to remain inside windows closed until further notice.

We'll bring you more information as it becomes available.
