Car crash causes gas leak in Camp Verde

An 82-year-old Camp Verde woman was reportedly not injured Monday after losing control of her car and causing damage to a gas meter.

According to Lisa Parkison, Camp Verde Marshals Office spokeswoman, Wilma Wade, lost control of her car about 11:23 a.m. and struck a pine tree and a natural gas meter.

The crash occurred on Ellison Drive.

Fire crews and gas company workers responded to the scene and turned off the meter, which was leaking gas, Parkison said.

Wade was cited for failure to control vehicle speed to avoid an accident.
