Tree comes crashing down

An old tree in Vancouver's West End came crashing down on Thursday. 

The decades-old Catalpa tipped over on Burnaby Street near Nicola Street, causing damage to the sidewalk and destroying a vehicle.

"My alarm got triggered and I thought maybe somebody bumped into my vehicle or something like that and I got the surprise that a tree fell on it," Sean Wormsbecker, told CTV. 

The park board believes the tree is between 60 and 80 years-old and was said to be healthy. 

Crews are still cleaning up the debris which will take up to two days.
