SAN JOSE, Calif. —
A Bay Area woman had a close call in San Jose Saturday night when a massive tree near the Winchester Mystery House fell on top of her car while she was inside it.
An emergency unit was responding to a medical call around 11:39 p.m., when they found the tree on Winchester Boulevard.
They called the fire department after realizing a woman was trapped in her car beneath the nearly 70-foot tree.
The woman, described by police as being middle-aged, was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Investigators said that it appeared that she was driving when the tree came down.
The tree blocked entire width of southbound Winchester until it was removed by crews overnight.
