FRAZIER PARK, Calif. (Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2009, 10 a.m.)—A tree fell and crushed a late model Chevrolet Camaro on Johnson Road in Frazier Park on Wednesday. There were no injuries in the incident.
Neighbor Allen Roe said he heard the tree falling around 8 a.m.
"I heard a loud ‘snap,’ then a big ‘crunch,’ I guess you would call it," Roe said chuckling as he referred to the sound of the car being crushed by the tree which had a diameter of about 16 inches.
Roe lives across the street from the residence where the car was located. Roe said the vehicle was owned by José Guardado. Neighbors were trying to reach Guardado to let him know about the car.
Roe and neighbor Gilbert Oyos began cutting the tree up with chainsaws at about 9:15 a.m.
High winds have caused serious problems in the area. A 21 year old man was killed Monday morning when a 90 foot pine tree fell on the house where he was sleeping in Pine Mountain. See related story.
