According to the Chico Police Department, a woman and child were inside a blue Toyota Rav 4 when a tree branch suddenly fell on top of their vehicle, causing them to be briefly trapped inside.

Authorities were able to safely remove the two and both of them had only minor injuries.

Their car was heavily damaged as well as the adjacent car, a black Volkswagen, driven by a man that was arrested in an unrelated incident before the tree branch fell.
