Authorities say a large eucalyptus tree fell on a car stopped at a red light in Southern California, crushing the vehicle and killing the female driver.
Costa Mesa police Lt. Mark Manley says the car was stopped on Irvine Boulevard shortly before 2 p.m. Thursday when the tree, estimated between 40 and 50 feet tall, toppled over from the center median and onto the vehicle.
The coroner's office identified the woman as 29-year-old Haeyoon Miller of Tustin.
Manley says Miller was the only person in the vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities do not know what caused the tree to fall.
