Vehicle Accidents

No citations were issued.

Gas Leak

On Tuesday, November 21, Security responded to Springfield Place for a report of smoke in the area. Upon arrival, the officer observed vapor coming out of a hole in the ground.

No further actions were taken by Security upon Atlanta Gas Company’s arrival.

The driver of the vehicle stated that a deer ran out in front of her, and she did not have time to react or stop. There was visible damage to the front of the vehicle.
