    While crews attempted to repair the glass, it fell onto Pearl Street below.

    North Pearl Street, between San Jacinto Street and Ross Avenue, was closed for a short time Monday while crews cleaned up the glass.

    There were no injuries reported.

    Officials with Chase Tower said bird strikes to the building are uncommon and that they only had two reported last year.
