People can be heard screaming as the billboard slowly falls into the group of cars parked in front of a local bank.
Luckily, no one was in the area at the time of the billboard’s sudden fall. Reports believe that there are zero casualties in the event but at least eight cars are said to be heavily damaged – some completely crushed by the massive pole holding the billboard and debris.
