Clearwater, Florida -- A gas leak has closed traffic on Ulmerton Road near Wild Acres Road in Largo while TECO gas crews work to repair it.

Authorities say the leak was caused by a construction worker who accidentally punched a hole through the gas line.

Employees at a nearby office complex were evacuated as a precaution.

Traffic is being diverted around the intersection until the all-clear has been given.
