A parking garage at the Broward County Courthouse that was scheduled to be demolished collapsed without notice on Wednesday, and two people sustained injuries as a result.
The 4-story garage is being demolished in order to make room for a new courthouse in Fort Lauderdale, but it was not meant to be torn down when it came crumbling to the ground on Wednesday. There were no construction workers inside the garage at the time of the collapse, but two people did suffer injuries from the debris that covered the street.
The collapse caused SE 6th street to be shut down while the debris was cleaned up and removed from the streets. A possible investigation into the incident may be conducted by OSHA, but it is unclear at this time if that will take place.
