30MPH Winds Topple Tree in Downtown SF Park, Trapping One
One person was injured late Saturday afternoon in San Francisco after being trapped by a tree that toppled, likely a result of high winds that reached up to 30 MPH.
San Francisco fire officials said the tree fell down just before 4 p.m. near Front and Jackson streets in downtown San Francisco, in Sydney G. Walton Square a few blocksnorth of the Embarcadero Center.
The person was trapped beneath the tree only briefly before being able to crawl out. The injured person was taken to a hospital for treatment.
