Arkansas Parking Garage Roof Collapses Under Ice

December 12, 2013

The roof of a downtown parking garage in Jonesboro, Ark., has collapsed and officials are blaming a buildup of ice and snow.

The garage roof fell on Tuesday. The structure is on Union Avenue, where a traffic lane is blocked off as a precaution.

City E911 director Jeff Presley told Jonesboro television station KAIT that no one was injured but several vehicles were in the parking deck at the time the roof failed.

Crews are working to clear the scene.
