Three people were seriously hurt when a tree fell onto a car on a Queens parkway Saturday, as the city was hit with a heavy afternoon rainstorm, officials said, according to Daily News.
The car was headed west on the Jackie Robinson Parkway near Exit 4 at about 5 p.m. when the tree fell, a Fire Department spokesman said.
Photos from the scene suggested that the mishap triggered an accident with at least one other car. A tan-colored minivan was badly flattened, and a silver sedan had its front hood folded and smashed.
