A tree fell on Kelton Avenue on Monday afternoon, damaging a pickup truck and a station wagon.
The fallen tree blocked the road between Ophir Drive and Levering Avenue in front of 555 Kelton Avenue as of Monday evening.
Joana Ramirez, a third-year biology student, said the tree fell around 2:45 p.m, and said smaller trees had fallen on Kelton Avenue in the past, including one last week.
Tiffany Hoang, a fourth-year psychology student, said she thinks it is common for trees to fall on Kelton Avenue.
“I’m just seeing this right now, but it’s insane,” she said. “Last spring, I was touring looking for apartments, there was a tree that had fallen.”
A City of Los Angeles Department of Public Works official placed signs around the area. None were immediately available for comment.
