KFYO News learned Tuesday afternoon (August 31st) that the framing of a Circle K convenience store under construction in West Lubbock collapsed. The accident happened during the middle of the day on Tuesday between 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.

As you can see in the attached photos, the building was being framed with wood, rather than the steel seen on most commercial buildings.

This Circle K was under construction at the intersection of 34th Street and Milwaukee Avenue. One person was injured at the scene.
