A four-wheeler parked at Kharkar Ali Road in Thane was crushed after a huge tree fell on it during the wee hours of Tuesday.
The incident took place around 3 am, when the Black Honda City (MH-03-BA-0303) was parked near Dr. Prakash P. Bhadkamkar Hospital, opposite Guru Krupa building, next to Police School at Kharkar Ali Road, Thane West.
The vehicle, registered to Prathmesh Banawali, was crushed under the weight of the tree. Fortunately, no casualties were reported in the mishap as the car was unoccupied at the time.
