A large tree fell on four vehicles Saturday in the parking lot of First Baptist Church of Charlotte, although no one was injured.
Three of the vehicles – a bus and two vans – are church property.
“Someone called me to tell me the tree was down and I was going to remove it until I saw how big it was,” said Jim Poplin, a member.
Sandra Montague’s green Buick Regal was the fourth car that the tree fell on in the downtown church parking lot.
She said she had left her car after borrowing a church van to run an errand.
The car was not damaged and Montague was able to drive it out from under the tree’s branches on Saturday afternoon.
“I was lucky,” she said.
