Wall At Morton Salt Collapses In Chicago


When it rains, it pours. A wall at the Morton Salt building in Chicago collapsed on Tuesday afternoon. The incident caused an avalanche of salt which covered about a dozen cars in the Acura lot next door.

The exact cause of the collapse hasn’t been determined yet but a preliminary inspection found that the salt was probably piled too high inside the building. Mimi Simon, the Chicago Department of Buildings Director of Public Affairs, said: “A preliminary inspection determined that salt inside the building structure was piled too high causing the exterior wall to fail.”

Noble Jones, the general manager of the McGrath Accura Dealership, said that he is currently trying to contact customers to alert them about the accident.

Jones said: “Right now we are just trying to figure out who are the customers and get in touch we them so they don’t find out about this at the last minute … I just couldn’t imagine this happening to us on this particular day going into the end of the year. It’s a busy day for us and usually we are more worried about selling cars than saving cars.”
