ELLENWOOD, GA (CBS46) -

A ruptured gas line forced some Clayton County residents out of their homes Wednesday morning.

The line was ruptured after a vehicle crashed into a gas main around 5 a.m. in a neighborhood near Amerson Court and Moreland Avenue in Ellenwood.

Residents were evacuated and roadways in the area were shut down for a short time. Atlanta Gas Light crews were able to disable the gas main and the roadways were reopened.

Residents have been allowed back in their homes.

It is unclear when service will be restored to the area.
