Yesterday, Gossips published a picture received from a reader showing damage to the tree at 544 Warren Street. Today, thanks to information from other readers, the story of how this happened can be told.
The tree was a casualty of what seems to have been a rather dramatic traffic accident that occurred on Friday, involving a car and a pickup truck. The car, which ended up on the sidewalk, dealt a glancing blow to the tree before coming to rest under the awning in front of The Barlow. All this happened not in the dead of night when the streets are deserted but in the middle of the day, around lunchtime. Let's be careful out there.
