Tree damage on Dean suggests truck impact

south side of Dean Street west of Carlton Avenue
June 13, 2015 - 4:12pm

Two trees were damaged (one significantly) on Dean Street west of Carlton Avenue this weekend.  My understanding is the damage occurred on Saturday sometime, (or at least was first observed on Saturday).  The damage is high up in the case of both trees.  One tree lost a large branch and another tree is scraped similarly to the trees previously damaged by trucks on Carlton and Dean Streets.  If the damage was from a truck, it must have been a tall one.
In the last few months the number of trucks using Dean Street has increased exponentially.  I haven't found any witnesses of the incident yet.

Tree damage from truck

Priority: -> normal
State: -> New
Client: -> Public

I have received a confirmation from a resident attending a children's party in an adjacent building that they heard the sound of brakes and the rumbling of a truck before hearing a loud bang.  When they went outside after the party the branches were on the ground. The incident occurred around 3 PM Saturday.
