Officials said part of Route 355 is closed Wednesday morning after a crash.

Route 355 North, also called North Frederick Avenue, is closed between Odenhal Avenue and North Westland Drive near Lakeforest Mall. Officials said it appears a truck struck a gas meter on a building.

It is not immediately clear how long the road closures will last but officials warned drivers to avoid the area.

Montgomery County fire and rescue officials said the gas has been shut off and controlled, and they are rechecking nearby buildings.
