    PETERS TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Water was spewing out from under a road in Peters Township on Wednesday after a water main break.

    The break occurred along East McMurray Road, slowing traffic in the area as water rained down onto the roadway and passing vehicles.

    According to a spokesperson for Pennsylvania American Water, a contractor struck a transmission line late Tuesday night.

    Customers in the area were without water until about noon Wednesday while repairs to the line were completed, the spokesperson said.
