ATLANTA — A downtown Atlanta parking garage has partially collapsed.
Atlanta fire officials say a crane fell through the first floor of the parking deck for the Publix Super Market at Summerhill on Hank Aaron Drive SE just after 7 a.m. Saturday morning.
Atlanta police say a truck later fell through the top floor of the deck. The driver of the truck was taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Fire officials say when the crane fell through, a water line was ruptured, causing a diesel leak.
Firefighters were able to stop the diesel from running into storm drains.
Atlanta police say it appears the weight of the truck was too heavy for the parking deck, causing it to collapse.
