Gas station canopy collapses in bad weather

The canopy covering several gas pumps at a gas station in Delavan, Wisconsin collapsed Monday afternoon and damaged one vehicle.

CBS58 in Milwaukee reports the collapse happened at the Citgo on Sugar Creek Road in the middle of a winter storm.

"Total surprise," owner Mike Fawley told CBS 58 News. "We were back in Whitewater where our main office is. We came over here as quickly as we could and it was a lot worse than I imagined."

Surveillance video captured the collapse, which happened just before 3:30 p.m.

The canopy landed on one vehicle.

"One vehicle had substantial damage," Chief Tim O'Neill of the Delavan Fire Department told CBS58. "No injuries to the person. The person with the damaged vehicle was in the store at the time. We were pretty lucky that the person out pumping had no damage to their vehicle and they weren't injured."

On Tuesday, a crane will remove the damaged canopy.
