Road closure Tuesday morning around the old National City bank building. Bricks fell from the building during rush hour Monday afternoon, smashing one vehicle on East 6th Street near Vincent Avenue and causing quite a scare.
Witnesses say a strong gust of wind hit around 4:15 p.m. when it happened. 
The building is not occupied. The new owners, Corning Place LLC bought it back in January. It is managed by Millennia Housing Management.
"There was no ongoing construction in the building, we are surprised this occurred," said Jeff Crossman with Millennia Housing Management.
Cleveland Police say that due to unstable and hazardous conditions of the building, the Bureau of Traffic will keep East 6th Street between Euclid and Superior closed until further notice, along with the westbound lanes of Euclid Avenue from East 9th to East 6th.
Engineers are being brought in to make sure the area is safe and prevent further damage.

NEW YORK (AP) - A man hiding inside a bathroom stall in the ladies room of a Manhattan sports bar grabbed a woman by the throat and raped her, police said.
The suspect walked into the basement bathroom of the Tunrmill Bar on East 27th Street on Saturday and hid inside a stall, police said. He then grabbed the 23-year-old woman, pulled her into a stall and raped her.
The suspect, who was described as 45 to 55 years old, fled the scene and was still on the loose Tuesday.
He was caught on a surveillance video walking outside the bar shortly after the alleged assault.
The victim was treated at a hospital.
The manager of the bar in the Kips Bay neighborhood told the Daily News that the suspect walked off the street and went downstairs to the toilets where he assaulted the woman.
