Another street in Toronto has been shut down after yet another piece of glass fell from a downtown highrise building Tuesday night, Aug. 2.

A large chunk of glass from the Festival Tower crashed on John St around 7:40 p.m., leaving the road closed as police and city building inspectors investigate, according to an Aug. 3 Toronto Star report.

It was the second incident of falling glass in two days. On Monday, at least two separate glass lites exploded on the upper balconies of a condominium near Bay and College Sts. and shards fell to the street below, according to the report.
