Binghamton firefighters were called to a First Ward neighborhood after a vehicle hit a natural gas installation on the side of a home.

The crash at 5 Seymour Street was reported around 5:20 p.m. Monday. There apparently were no injuries in the incident.

An out-of-control Toyota Camry jumped the curb on Colfax Avenue. It apparently struck a section of a fence before smashing into the gas meter outside the two-story house.

Firefighters tried to shut off the gas using a valve next to the street. They stood by until a NYSEG repair crew arrived at the scene.

Binghamton police were investigating the crash.
