The scoreboard hangs over one of the George Washington University arena crashed on Tuesday.

The crash happened on the Charles E. Smith Center in Washington, D. C., the site of many of George Washington University’s athletic teams compete, including both men and women’s basketball and gymnastics, Fox 5 DC reported.

A photo of the crash scene on Twitter showed the big scoreboard with the LV logo – it rested on a corner in the middle of the court.
