Wall under construction collapses at Crossgates Mall

A portion of a temporary wall under construction in Crossgates Mall fell and injured people on Thurs

A portion of a temporary wall under construction in Crossgates Mall fell and injured people on Thursday, according to the Gazette's news-gathering partner CBS 6.

The temporary wall, which is part of the new Dave and Busters restaurant, includes metal scaffolding and fell into an area where people walk. The accident happened at around 1 p.m.

Witnesses told CBS 6 reporter Jennifer Lewke that a woman was hit by the falling wall and taken to the hospital.

A photo by Lewke of the aftermath is available on her Twitter account.

The accident happened on the lower level of the mall near the movie theaters. Plans for Dave and Busters were announced last November.
