WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A crash in Tippecanoe County sends one to the hospital and momentarily puts a neighborhood in danger.
It happened around 9:45 Monday morning.
According to Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Deputy Rodney Dilling a bus was traveling north on Soldiers Home Road when the driver collided with a van trying to turn west onto Prophet Drive.
The van then went into a yard, through a fence and hit a gas meter, causing a gas leak.
Dilling says West Lafayette Fire was able to quickly shut off the gas to the home, removing the danger.
"Typical protocol for something like this is the fire department is notified, gas company is notified and they take whatever steps necessary to get the gas turned off," said Dilling. "The road was temporarily shut down until we got the gas leak stopped and once it was stopped, like I said it was momentarily, we were able to open the road back up."
No one was on the bus at the time of the crash.
The driver of the van was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
Inventions were built by Purdue mechanical engineering students for a final class project.
U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly has traveled around the state throughout the week talking with workers at automotive plants.
A man wanted for burglary and theft has been found thanks to an anonymous tip.
