Salt breached the walls of a Morton Salt factory in Chicago Tuesday afternoon, burying cars parked at an Acura dealer next door.

WBBM Chicago reported that the collapse was likely caused by too much salt behind the wall, or deterioration of the wall.

There were no injuries, according to the Chicago Fire Department. But those Acuras may never be the same.
