Partial building collapse


Recommended Posts

I shot this video earlier today, about 10 hours after an SUV ran into the corner of the building, causing part of the front wall to collapse.

Some time ago, the masonry wall at the ground floor was removed and two I-beams were added to support the remaining wall. It looks like the vehicle took out the support under the outer edge of one of the I-beams, it came down, and all of the brick it had been supporting came down too.

A lot of bricks surrounding the SUV were removed before I got there.

That is freaking insane. How does something like this happen. Anyone hurt??

...an SUV ran into the corner of the building, causing part of the front wall to collapse.

Drunk, texting, having sex, watching something besides their driving, a myriad of reasons for stuff like this. Maybe even actual mechanical failure!
