Elderly couple rescued after tree crashes down in San Marcos

Posted: Updated:

(CNS) - A couple escaped serious injury today when a large wind-buffeted eucalyptus tree toppled onto their car as they drove along a San Marcos street.

The accident in the 900 block of Rancheros Drive was reported about 9:30 a.m., sheriff's Lt. Scott Ybarrondo said.

Emergency crews freed the couple, described as "elderly," from their damaged vehicle, then took the man to a hospital for a precautionary evaluation. No serious injuries were reported, Ybarrondo said.

Windy conditions prevailed throughout San Diego County over the morning and were expected to linger into the early evening, according to the National Weather Service.
