Scaffolding crashes into condo windows in downtown San Diego

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An unoccupied window-washing scaffolding began swinging uncontrollably atop an East Village condominium high-rise Monday, smashing through a window before crews were able to secure it.

The non-injury accident in the 800 block of Market Street occurred about 3:45 p.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

The operators of the platform told authorities gusty winds apparently had caused the accident, SDFRD Capt. Joe Amador said.

Police closed a block of the street fronting the building for about two hours as a precaution while workers removed the apparatus.
