SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - A piece of cement broke off the Nor West Parking Garage on Main and Wayne streets in downtown South Bend on Sunday.

The debris fell into the middle of the street, but thankfully no one was injured.

Wayne Street was closed for the evening.

The South Bend Engineering Department took over Monday to assess the damages. An inspection found a failure of the attachment mechanism on the concrete façade, stating, “These are nonstructural elements, however, are large and are heavy. A structural analysis of the remaining concrete façade and attachment mechanism are underway.”
