CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - These three cars where no match for this old rotting tree that fell after Friday’s powerful storms and winds passed through Charlotte.
One family lost two of their cars, one of which was a Bronco they were planning on restoring.
Neighbors told FOX 46 that the tree had been rotting for a while along with many others on the road
and many had called the city to get them removed.
However, that was about eight weeks ago and still nothing had been done, and last week’s storms weakened many of these trees.
They tell FOX 46 Charlotte if the city had taken it down when they called, this damage would've never happened.
For now, neighbors and tree removers will have to work to get the street cleaned up.
