I checked the light switch thinking perhaps there was a power outage.  No, the lights worked just fine. 

Needing to get to an appointment, I decided to close the door manually by releasing the emergency lever and dropping it down.  At the half way point, the door sped up and SNAP...BOOM...BANG ~ it crashed to the ground!
