Photos of San Luis Obispo garage roof collapsing

March 7, 2015

Coordinated through social media, several thousand college-aged men and women poured into a residential neighborhood in San Luis Obispo near Cal Poly on Friday night. Many of the revelers were drinking alcoholic beverages and were wearing green clothing for the pre-Saint Patrick’s Day celebration.

San Luis Obispo police were informed of the loud block party at 4:44 a.m. on Saturday and began giving citations.

At 6:21 a.m., between 30 to 40 party-goers were standing on top of a garage at 364 Hathaway Avenue and the roof collapsed under the weight of the people, causing at least eight injuries.

Following are photos of the roof collapsing:

    I certainly hope climate change does us in before these guys come to power in the world.

    Great national exposure for our acclaimed school of Architecture and Engineering. The only dumber stunt would be to sit on the wrong side of the branch you are cutting. Our best and brightest should apply for the permit and rebuild this garage to finish their learning experience.
