Water was flowing down a street in central Killeen after an accident on Thursday.

According to an Atmos Energy employee on site, a work crew drilling for a gas line accidentally hit a water line and caused a significant water leakage on Illinois Avenue.

Some water could be observed trailing all the way to Estelle Avenue around noon on Thursday. While at the site, the Herald could observe a compact excavator in use, but the extent of the damage to the water line was not clarified.
