A truck accident in Berks County tied up traffic for awhile Friday morning.

An accident involving a truck and a gas line forced officials to close Route 724/Main Street in Birdsboro between Water and Spruce streets.

It happened around 8:20 a.m.

Officials said the car hit some parked cars and then a porch.

There's no word on any injuries or what might have caused the accident.

The road has since reopened.
