EAST SAN JOSE, Calif. -- A portion of Story Road remains shut down Sunday afternoon in San Jose, as PG&E crews attempt repair a gas leak caused by a vehicle crash.

The gas leak was first reported around 1 p.m. in the 2200 block of Story Road, according to San Jose Fire Department Capt. Brad Cloutier.

Multiple businesses on Story Road were evacuated, as well as homes on Amador Drive, Cloutier said.

Story Road between Leeward Drive and Adrian Way has been closed in both directions and residents are being asked to avoid the area.

PG&E crews have arrived on scene and were able to stop the flow of gas at 3:28 p.m., according to Cloutier.

Although an estimated time for when the ruptured gas line would be repaired was not available, no customers in the area are without gas, PG&E spokesman J.D. Guidi said.
