    The roughly 60-foot tree fell near El Cerro Boulevard at about 8:34 a.m., either landing in front of or on top of the woman's vehicle, Brandon Correia with the CHP said.

    The woman suffered severe blunt force trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Correia. Authorities later identified the victim as Lyudmila Beyzer, a doctor at John Muir Medical Center.
