Salt avalanche covers cars after factory wall collapses

Don’t go chasing salterfalls.

A WALL AT a salt factory in Chicago collapsed yesterday, causing a salterfall to submerge the neighbouring car dealership.

While there was a rolling ton or so of the salt, no one was injured–just baffled as to how this building is even constructed. What, do they just fill the place up wall-to-wall in salt?

The Chicago Fire Department were quick on the scene, and we can only hope they brought some chips and vinegar.
