Hurricane Middle School evacuated after gas leak

Hurricane Middle school students were released early on Thursday because of a natural gas leak. There were no injuries because of the gas leak, but there have been reports that a utility worker was hurt after being hit by a pickup truck as he was trying to close off a road around the school. He was taken to the hospital. A utility crew was putting a new telephone pole in when they hit a gas line, according to school officials, and students were evacuated to the football field as a precaution. School was released then shortly after lunch time.
