State Route 162, between state Route 57 and state Route 3, was closed to through traffic this afternoon after a resident accidentally hit and broke a natural gas line with a riding mower, according to Montville Township police.
The incident happened about 11:30 a.m. between Highland Green Drive and state Route 57. Local traffic is permitted on state Route 162 west of that area.
No one was injured, but it could take workers until 6 p.m. to fix the leak, police said.
