Police believe they know what caused a canopy that covers gas pumps at a Quakertown gas station to collapse and hit a car on Thursday afternoon.

They say that heavy snow on the roof of the canopy is most likely responsible for the collapse.

The collapse took place at the Sunoco at 331 West Broad Street, just moments after five cars pulled away. The front of an 86-year-old woman's car was damaged in the collapse. Police say if the woman had been just a few more feet under the canopy, she would have been crushed.

No one was injured in the scary incident.
