This isn’t the first time a tree has fallen on the UCSD campus and caused damage.
And this week, a eucalyptus tree in a UCSD parking lot near Mesa housing fell and damaged four cars, one of which had just been purchased by a student.
A student named Seungchul Lee wrote on the popular Nextdoor app:
“Hi neighbors, I’m an incoming graduate student from South Korea. I’d say disaster happened… my car is literally broken. I just bought a car a week ago. I exchanged [the] old one for this one and I was kind of reviewing my insurance because it doesn’t have comprehensive coverage.
“Then it happened. I called the insurance company and received [the information that] I have to pay in full by myself. UCSD says it is under investigation and if it’s not their negligence, they won’t compensate for it.
“There are 4 cars broken and can you guys tell me what I should do now?”
The tree fell Tuesday morning, Sept. 28.
