A massive eucalyptus tree that grew in the street median along Bosworth fell over during high winds Wednesday, Jan. 4 at around 5:30 pm. The tree fell across the westbound lanes of Bosworth, snarling traffic and blocking the roadway. No one appeared to have been injured when the large tree came down, though a car parked in the BART parking lot was buried under some of the branches.
By Thursday morning City crews had cleared away the tree, leaving only a hole in the median. A smaller tree along the sidewalk of Bosworth was damaged by the falling eucalyptus and had to be removed as well.
