CRESTWOOD, Ky. (WDRB) -- Oldham County officials give the all-clear, after a gas leak forced the evacuation of a key intersection of Crestwood. 

The gas leak happened about 11 a.m. Thursday in the area of Kentucky 22 and Kentucky 146 near Railroad Avenue.  Emergency management director Kevin Nuss says a construction crew's backhoe severed a natural gas line. 

Several buildings in the immediate area were evacuated. Emergency management said on Twitter about 1:30 p.m. that the area is clear.  One lane on Ky. 146 will be closed until everything is cleaned up.
