Man hurt by falling tree near Weatherspoons pub....

I did wonder what was going on last Friday when I saw a huge oak tree being chopped up and loaded onto the back of a huge lorry at the back of the Co op. The whole road was blocked off round that vicinity. I just assumed that a tree had been felled to make way for some new development or something along those lines. Someone just told me though that actually the tree had fallen down and crushed three cars, trapping and seriously injuring one man who was sitting in his. See story here on local news site....

Sad indeed and incorrect too. Qurcus it was not, Aesculus it was.

I saw that car the next morning, still in the coop car park. It was completely flattened, still with a large part of the tree stuck in what was left of the roof.
Goes to show how seemingly important matters at the time, can be reduced to nothing in a split second.
