A car has hit a gas meter near Bloor Street West and Dovercourt Road causing a gas leak and forcing residents in the area to evacuate.
It happened just after 3 a.m. and Toronto Police say that there were no injuries, but one person has been taken into custody for an alcohol related offence.
There are several road closures in the area as Enbridge Gas Services is currently working to determine what kind of gas runs through the pipes affected in the crash.
