Garbage truck springs gas leak

Update: A compressed natural gas garbage truck collided with a tree at 60th St. and 1st. Ave., sparking a gas leak a little after 9 a.m.

The natural gas could be smelled blocks away. Amy emailed us to say she could smell it “strongly” from 72nd and Dayton. The city of Seattle recently rolled out the new fleet of natural gas garbage trucks to replace the old diesel variety.

  1. what could a garbage truck possibly hit to cause a leak? aren't these lines mostly buried deep under the street? any meter would've been protected by “my bollard”
