    Several runners have been hurt when part of a metal structure at the starting line collapsed before a marathon in South Texas.

    The city of Brownsville says in a statement the accident happened Saturday morning just before the Bi-National 10K & 5K Run. Officials did not immediately say how many people were hurt. Some were taken by ambulance to hospitals for evaluation.

    Authorities are trying to determine what caused the collapse. The National Weather Service had issued a wind advisory for Saturday morning through early evening.

    Interim City Manager Michael L. Lopez says no additional information will be released because of the investigation and to respect the privacy of those involved.

    Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    [DFW] Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
    After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
    That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
    Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
    The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
    Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
    Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
    The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.

    The race was held as scheduled following the accident.
