UPDATE: Tree limb falls on car at Lincoln Park

5:44 PM: Thanks to the person who texted about this: A tree limb fell on a car on the north end of Lincoln Park’s north parking lot; that entrance is closed right now.

A Seattle Parks rep at the scene told us no one was injured and that the car was not seriously damaged. He said it happened about an hour ago and that a crew is en route.

We don’t know if this is one of the ~90 Lincoln Park trees identified for pruning/removal, as reported here earlier this summer; that work is expected to start soon.

8:20 PM: Just went by the parking lot. A Parks crew is wrapping up removal of the downed limb. The north entrance to the north lot is open again.

    wow, that’s big enough to kill somebody.  Hope they get to pruning the other trees faster now.

    Yikes!  We were there before 4 PM and walked under that tree while walking around Lincoln Park.  We parked in that lot but further south. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
