Midtown Atlanta parking deck collapse aftermath on video

John Williams has awesome timing. About 10 to 15 minutes before a portion of a Midtown Atlanta parking deck collapsed today, the web designer, who works in a nearby building, says he left the area to get his car's emissions checked. He returned to find the structure near Technology Square shut down, firetrucks parked, and a crowd gathered wondering just what the hell happened.

  • In this photo taken this afternoon the middle section of the Centergy parking deck is collapsed onto the floors below it. On the bottom floor cars are smashed on top of each other.

"It looked like a section about five cars wide just fell and took out the next three floors below it," Williams said in a phone interview with CL. "You can see the cars piled up."

Williams shot video from the scene. To view them, click the screenshots below.
