SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) — A tree fell on a car near Washington Square Park in San Francisco on Friday.

The incident occurred on Union Street and Powell Street, across Columbus Avenue.

Last week, a large branch suddenly snapped from a mature sycamore tree at Washington Square Park, according to San Francisco Parks & Rec.

In 2016, a tree limb fell on a woman and left her paralyzed. The woman was near the playground at the same park.

A spokesperson told KRON4 it was a canary island pine limb that fell and paralyzed the woman.
