Road closed due to large leak at gas station


By Christine Holmes, News Director

South Pleasant Grove Road will likely be closed all day between U.S. Route 40 and Clay Pike due to a gas spill, Muskingum County EMA Director Jeff Jadwin estimates.

According to Sheriff Matt Lutz, the driver of a semi-truck used the parking lot of the Marathon gas station to turn around when she hit a gas pump and knocked it off the line around 11 p.m. Thursday night.

Lutz said the driver left the scene but was later located and questioned.

Criminal charges are still pending at this time.
