Truck falls through roof in Fall River

FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) — The city of Fall River is investigating after a truck fell through the roof of a popular city restaurant Friday night.

Crews removed the pickup truck from a large hole that opened up on the roof of the Academica Restaurant and Club on South Main Street. The roof had been converted into a parking lot for patrons.

Police said nobody was in the building and nobody was in the truck when the hole opened up.

Fall River Mayor Will Flanagan tells Eyewitness News he’s confident the incident is not the result of negligence on the part of the city’s building inspectors saying, “I’m not aware of any structural issues on scene,  now we need to determine what happened and why it happened.”

Club members at the Academica are now determining what steps to take in the remodeling of their building.
