A car accident between a first responder vehicle and another car occured Saturday afternoon on West Main Street while National Grid workers and firefighters from the Smithtown Fire Department were fixing a gas leak.
According to Chief John Hansen of the Smithtown Fire Department, contractors were working on a water main next to 43 West Main Street at 2 p.m. and hit a one-inch gas main.
As of 4 p.m. the broken gas main was capped by the workers at the scene.
During the leak a first responder vehicle that was bringing water to the scene struck a car at the intersection of West Main Street and Maple Avenue after the car turned in front of the first responder vehicle, Hansen said. The chief said there was one injury, the passenger of the vehicle, who was brought to St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center and treated for minor injuries.
