The Preston County Sheriff's Department is seeking information about an accident at a residence in Albright Thursday morning.

The fire department was able to shut off gas at the residence after reporting that an audible gas sound and smell was observed.

Deputies observed that an unknown vehicle appeared to have been traveling south along Saint Joe Road, when it traveled off the western roadway edge, through the resident's yard. The vehicle then struck the resident's vehicle before reentering the roadway.

The vehicle is believed to be large in size, and deputies said it is likely to have damage on the front passenger side, and a possible broken headlight.

No injuries were reported, according to the sheriff's department.
