Downed Tree Damages Car, Snarls Beltway Traffic
Shortly before 9AM Sunday, a large tree fell down on the Inner Loop of the Beltway between River Road and Bradley Blvd.
Immediately after the tree fell, a passing car struck part of the tree in the roadway. Fortunately, nobody was injured.
Firefighters from the Cabin John Park Volunteer Fire Department and the Carderock Naval Surface Warfare Center quickly cleared the downed tree. They were assisted by a passing landscaping crew who stopped and assisted. Several lanes were briefly blocked but have since reopened.
