Cherokee, North Carolina – Parking garage ramp collapses at Harrah’s Casino

A portion of a ramp that leads from the first floor to the second floor in Harrah’s parking garage has collapsed resulting in minor injury for one person. The incident took place on Friday the 15th of April. The casino released the following statement shortly afterwards;

“Spokespersons at Harrah’s Cherokee state that a full and comprehensive engineering study is set to begin later today and is expected to take several days. Until they are done with their work, we will not have any further updates.

A component failure occurred on the ramp that connects the first and second floors of the deck. One minor injury was reported.

Guests are asked to park in the surface lots on the west side of the casino property and other alternative parking areas are being identified. Casino employees will be moved off-site to allow convenient parking for guests.”
