At 10:53 pm August 6, 2008 police assisted Saskatoon Fire and Protective Services and Sask Energy at the rear of 255 3rd Ave South for a broken natural gas line. The scene was secured and the gas turned off without injury.
It was apparent that a vehicle had caused the damage and left the scene.
Shortly after this incident police arrested a responsible party at Witney Ave and 22nd St. The vehicle had just committed a second hit and run on a west end crescent.
