Salt Landslide Buries Cars After Chicago Morton Facility Collapses

1 minute read

Morton Salt’s company slogan, “When It Rains It Pours,” couldn’t be more appropriate for what happened at one of its facilities this week.

A Morton Salt facility in Chicago experienced a partial building collapse Tuesday, causing a massive amount of salt to bury cars in a parking lot next to the building.

The collapse was likely caused by too much salt against the wall, or the wall was in poor condition, CBS News reports. The cars were undergoing maintenance at a dealership nearby.

There are currently no reported injuries.
