A woman was hurt and taken to the hospital Tuesday after her car hit a tree on Via Princessa.

“This call was for a traffic collision ALS,” said Fire Department spokesman Austin Bennett, referring to a call for advanced life support. “It was a solo vehicle that hit a tree.”  

Responding paramedics found a Chevrolet SUV had knocked the tree over onto the sidewalk.
