The tower, located at 3454 S. Grand Blvd. next to an All Rental store, is owned by Crown Castle International, according to the TowerSource database.
A duel-storm system with a rain/snow mix, gusty winds and cold temperatures may have contributed to the collapse of the 194-foot monopole. There were no reported injuries in the incident.
A nearby security guard shot a video of the same tower waving violently in a storm three months earlier, according to a report on KTVI. He said the attempts to fix an “uneven seam” just above the antenna array midway up the pole had been unsuccessful.
Crown officials did not return a call for comment. Top Photo: KTVI, Bottom Photo: Google.
