Large Tree Falls on Car

A Meridian woman escaped injury Monday when a tree split and crashed onto her car on A-Avenue, near Eastern Gardens Apartments.

The tree also brought down a powerline.

Lee Tamayo said she was waiting to take her sister to an appointment.

"I started complaining in September of last year and up till now," said Lee Tamayo of Meridian. "I'm constantly complaining because I feel like if I don't say something, they'll forget it. So from time to time, not every day, not every week, but I call them. And I talk to different ones, as I said. And they have all told me that they would do something about it."

Kevin Locke of Meridian's Community Development Department said the tree is on city right-of-way, but the investigation into who is responsible for the damage has not been completed.
