Vikings announce new stadium sells out for inaugural season

Authorities say high winds caused scaffolding to collapse on the edge of the Vikings stadium site and fall onto a downtown Minneapolis street.

The Minneapolis Police Department says the incident happened late Sunday afternoon. The department says there wasn’t any traffic in the area at the time, and no one was on the scaffolding went it blew over and came crashing down on 5th Street.

Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder says the roof of a trailer was damaged, but no injuries were reported.

The street was temporarily closed as workers removed parts of the scaffolding.

Light rail trains weren’t affected by the collapse.
