Remnants of the tree that fell.


A woman was killed by a falling tree as she was waiting in her car, Cal Fire officials say.

The incident happened around 8 a.m. along Lake Frances Road near Dobbins. Officials say a 30-foot piece of an 80 to 90 feet high ponderosa tree fell onto the woman’s car.

Bystanders were able to lift the piece off the car, but one woman was killed. Another woman also inside the car at the time had to be airlifted to a trauma center in Roseville.
