Morton Salt Avalanche Buries Three Vehicles At Car Dealership Next Door

Quick, someone grab all the deer and salt shakers you can find and start licking/scooping: After a storage facility wall partially collapsed at Morton Salt in Chicago, the Acura dealership next door became the victim of a salt avalanche that completely buried at least three cars and damaged up to 11.

The wall came down around 2 p.m. in the Goose Island neighborhood of Chicago (also known for the beer of that name from the area), reports ABC7, dumping enough white stuff to cover three cars and crush the tops of others.

A total of 11 vehicles were damaged, four of which were new to the dealership and others that belong to customers waiting for service to be completed on them.

Firefighters think the salt was piled too high near the wall by workers, putting a strain on the decades-old wall that it simply couldn’t bear. In the meantime, cleanup is underway, while the dealership works to replace damaged cars and get customers on the road without a fine dusting of powder.
