Contractor Says He's Really Sorry for Busting San Bruno Gas Line Yesterday

The contractor responsible for nicking the PG&E gas line yesterday in San Bruno sent his apologizes to the city and residents who were evacuated during the  gas leak and vowed to implement better safety measures.

Workers for San Francisco-based Shaw Pipeline ruptured a 2-inch gas line while digging with a backhoe at the same site of the 2010 pipeline explosion that killed eight and burned dozens of homes. The fire department evacuated 14 homes, and shut off the gas by 11:24, PG&E spokesman Joe Molica said.
As of Thursday evening, all services were restored; unlike last time, this gas leak did not spark a fire, and nobody was injured.
