Happy ending to hazardous situation in Athens

An Athens firefighter views the scene of a flipped-over propane truck Monday on Strain Road east of U.S. 31 in Athens.

The accident caused a gas leak on the truck, prompting the evacuation of several residences and the blocking of traffic near Strain Nursery while firefighters worked to locate the leak and shut it down.

The truck's driver was taken to Athens-Limestone Hospital with cuts to his hand. Nobody else was injured.
