A wreck on Varilla curve halted traffic on Saturday due to a propane gas leak for the involved vehicle.


At about 3 p.m., the Bell County Volunteer Fire Department (BCVFD) responded to a report of a car wreck on U.S. 119 at Varilla curve with the car on its top.


According to BCVFD press officer Bucky Shelby, upon the arrival of fire units on scene we found an overturned work truck laying on its driver side. Both James Elam, 23, of London, and a juvenile male passenger were out of the truck with no injuries. Neither of the occupants were transported to the hospital.


Shelby said U.S. 119 was closed to traffic for a short time while the BCVFD worked to contain a propane gas leak from some of the equipment that was on board the truck. Kentucky State Police Trooper Brian Green was the investigating officer on the case.


Others who assisted at the scene were Bell County EMS and Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement.


U.S. 119 was cleared and opened to traffic, and all emergency units were released at 4:30 p.m. without any further incidents, according to Shelby.
