    A large tree limb fell and crushed several cars in Pleasant Hill early Thursday, but no one was injured.

    According to a homeowner, a limb from the 350-year-old heritage oak tree came crashing down in the area of Hardy Circle and Soule Avenue around midnight, damaging at least six vehicles and parts of another.

    "I heard a crack that sounded like someone hit a baseball bat, like a wood bat against a ball really hard," homeowner Audra Cudd said. "Then all of a sudden, 'Boom!'"

    Cudd said she is concerned about two other limbs on the tree. She wants those limbs to be inspected with help from the city.
