MidAmerican Energy says a car that crashed caused a gas leak Monday morning in Des Moines.
It happened just before the noon hour at MLK Jr. Parkway and Hickman Road.
MidAmerican says a car hit a tree then a gas meter at a car wash, causing the leak. MLK Jr. Parkway was crossed for a short time, while crews capped the leak.
The driver of the car suffered minor injuries.
