This poor little Smart Car! A tree in Manhattan fell down during the early snowfall this weekend and crushed it like a little bug. And what a lovely tree – it’s a shame when the city streets lose a big old tree like this one.


Here it is closer up with the tree still crushing it, and sprawling away to block the whole street. You can see all the leaves still on the tree – they say that the leaves, combined with just how wet the snow was, is what made so many trees fall. The snow was just way too early this year.

Once the tree was removed, the car wasn’t really any better off than it was when the tree was still on it.

Help me!  I've been squashed!

Poor little thing never stood a chance against that tree. Do you notice the sympathetic black Smart Car next to it, commiserating?
