Santa Ana Winds Causes Tree to Break, Fall on Car in Tustin

Tustin, CA (October 15, 2018) – A woman was killed when part of a large eucalyptus tree broke off and fell onto her car in Tustin. The fatal accident happened on the morning of October 15 at Red Hill Avenue.

The woman’s death was caused by the Santa Ana winds, which have been threatening the Southern California area. She died after she was trapped inside the car. She has not yet been identified. The tree, which fell at an apartment complex, also damaged a carport.

The winds are a concern, considering the low humidity and dry vegetation. There is a high risk of fire, particularly in the mountains, where wind gusts are expected to reach 65 mph.
