Scaffolding falls, crushes cars in Lincoln Park

Cars were crushed overnight after scaffolding fell in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood.

Strong, gusty winds knocked over a huge scaffolding structure at Lakewood and Diversey.

No injuries were reported, but it appears at least three cars were crushed.

One man, who had just gotten off work in the area, returned to find his car was just one parking spot away from being really damaged.

A few streets around Diversey and Lakewood were closed Saturday morning until crews could get the site all cleaned up.
