Ceiling collapses at bank in Vineyards, Collier County, none injured

Thousands of pounds of concrete came crashing down at a bank in Collier County. Luckily, no one was hurt.

A portion of the outside overhang ceiling collapsed at a Chase Bank at Crossroads Market on Pine Ridge Road in the Vineyards Thursday.

The ceiling portion was not under construction. It gave way for no apparent reason.

No one was hurt during the collapse. A witness told WINK News it’s a busy plaza, and she saw children playing underneath the ceiling section shortly before it collapsed. Two bank employees had also been near the section before it fell.

North Collier Fire Rescue District had a building inspector on scene checking the area because the overhang on the building wraps around the entire center.

In the North Collier Fire Facebook post, it said the bank will remained closed indefinitely.
