NORFOLK, Neb. -- A building in downtown Norfolk has collapsed. This happened around 1:00 p.m. near 7th St. and Norfolk Ave. 

The wall on the western side of the building fell, proceeding to bring the rest of the building along with it. The building was supposed to be the new IHUB building for Northeast Community College. 

A few cars were damaged in the process and some people in the area had some close calls. 

"I told him: 'Get over in the other lane, the building is coming down'," witness LeeAnn Riggs said. "He was trying to get over because there was a guy there too, parked. We got over and it came down on our car."

"I was not really paying attention and see the building kind of start moving," witness Griffin Riggs said. "It was really coming down so I was able to finally just barely back up enough so it didn't do too much damage to my car. But, incredible, I saw my life flash before me."

According to Norfolk Police, the cause of the collapse has yet to be determined. There were no reported injuries. 

Northeast Community College officials said they were contacted by its contractor about the collapsed building.

They will be working with the city of Norfolk to keep the premises safe.

A groundbreaking was held back in April for the iHub.
