Police and gas crews are working a gas leak in New Iberia. Captain Ryan Turner with the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office says a backhoe was digging near the corner of St. Peter and French Streets when it hit a gas line. The gas company is en route to the scene to stop the leak. Turner says there are no evacuations in place. However, he says drivers are urged to avoid the area by using Corrine Street as a detour.
