BENTON- Hazardous materials crews are on the scene of a gas spill in Bossier Parish.

Lt. Bill Davis of the Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office says it happened just before noon at an Exxon gas station on Highway 3 at Highway 162.

KTBS-TV reports a motorist apparently hit a hose attached to a fuel truck and gas began to spew. Approximately 200 gallons of gas was spilled.

Sheriff's deputies have part of the road blocked off on Highway 3, south of Stenson Road and north at the Benton overpass for about a half mile in both directions. The intersection of Highway 162 is also blocked.

Davis says sand trucks also are on the scene to help with clean up.

No injuries were reported.
