Tree falls on car, trapping 2 men in Vancouver

A large tree has fallen on several vehicles at the corner of Cambie and Hastings streets, trapping two men in their car under a trolley bus line.

The tree fell on vehicles at 400 Cambie Street in downtown Vancouver on Tuesday afternoon. A white SUV is now trapped under the tree, with two people inside.

Witness Maddy Kipling was walking near Cambie Street when she watched the whole scene unfold.

"It was so weird. I mean, nothing happens to the tree, the tree was just hanging out doing its thing that it had for hundreds of years,' said Kipling.

"All of sudden you heard this bush kinda shaking and then, just kind of silent at first, I watched it and it just hit the wires and they started snapping."

The fallen tree has also knocked over a lamppost and BC Hydro says it's working to cut power to the downed trolley lines. 

More to come.
