LEXINGTON, Ky. — Emergency crews reported to the scene of a parking deck collapse in downtown Lexington early Thursday morning.
Officials said the incident occurred just after 5 a.m. at 200 Vine St. The collapse was due to heavy snow on the structure.
No injuries were reported and no cars were damaged.

He said the top deck will need to be completely redone.
"We will make this right," Webb said.
