Tree Falls On 3 Vehicles As Storms Move Through Charlotte Area

CHARLOTTE, NC — A tree came crashing down on three vehicles in Charlotte today as strong winds and rain moved across the area.

The incident happened just before 6pm on E. 7th Street near Ridgeway Avenue in east Charlotte. CMPD says three vehicles were damaged in the fall, but no injuries were reported.

The tree came down as a result of severe thunderstorms that pushed across the city Thursday evening, and brought heavy downpours and gusty winds to the area.

No power lines were damaged as a result of the fall, officials say, but AT&T was notified of the incident.

One outbound lane was closed while crews worked to clear the debris.
