CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (UTC/The Loop) — A wall at UTC’s historic Engel Stadium collapsed in Wednesday’s severe weather.

A portion of the left-field wall completely caved with the heavy winds and rain, tumbling debris onto 4th Street Wednesday morning. Workers cleaned the rubble out of the street but parts of the wall remain on the sidewalk.

The historic stadium that once housed the Chattanooga Lookouts from the days of the Great Depression had been condemned last month.

University of Tennessee of Chattanooga officials are working to transfer ownership of the stadium from the city of Chattanooga. To read more about the transfer of the stadium to UTC, click here.
