No one was injured Wednesday when this large branch broke from a tree and landed on the rear of a truck.

Many people heard or witnessed the incident, which occurred in the parking lot next to the Farmer’s Market at about 1:30 p.m. as the market was wrapping up for the day. Police arrived soon after and kept people from lingering under the tree as the wind continued.

City Manager Eric Wier confirmed the tree is on city property along K Street near Front Street. He said the incident will be reported to the truck owner’s insurance and then a claim will be filed with the city’s insurance.
