Eucalyptus tree crushes car and grazes garage in Sunday morning incident.
Residents of Brentwood had a narrow escape early Sunday morning when a large eucalyptus tree fell near a home and crashed into a neighbor’s yard.
The tree, which measured over 100 feet, narrowly missed the home on W. Bolas Street, but crushed a parked Jeep and grazed the roof of the garage. Luckily, the homeowner reported no damage.
Neighbors reported hearing the tree fall at around 12:30 a.m., and the homeowner said he had been worried about the tree prior to the incident. It is unclear what caused the tree to go down, but recent heavy rains may have contributed to the incident.
While the fallen tree did not block the street or cause any power outages, neighbors are now concerned about other trees in the area and whether they need attention to prevent future incidents. Strong winds have been reported in Brentwood, including Sunday morning.
Fortunately, there were no injuries resulting from the incident.
