Scaffolding encircling a Brooklyn Heights building came crashing down Saturday, injuring three people walking by, officials said.
Pieces of the scaffolding, which was in the process of being taken down, fell outside a Starbucks coffee shop and an entrance to the Borough Hall train station at the corner of Court and Joralemon Sts. at about 11 a.m.
The falling beams took out a corner traffic signal and struck three people, FDNY officials said.
All the injuries were considered minor, the department said.
Two of the three victims were taken to New York Methodist Hospital for treatment.
A third refused medical attention at the scene.
