Nicki Carano, 48, dead after tree falls across Ingraham Street, crushing 4 cars in Pacific Beach, San Diego, California
San Diego Fire Rescue was called to the scene shortly after 3:00 p.m. in the 3900 block of Ingraham Street near Fortuna Avenue, according to Capt. Joe Amador.
The 48-year-old woman in the passing car, who was identified by friends as musician Nicki Carano, was killed. She was on her way to Winstons in Ocean Beach to perform with her band Spider Tree. Friends described her as a talented drummer and a consummate professional, who inspired those around her.
Her parents, Anthony and Carole Ann Carano, filed the lawsuit last week in San Diego Superior Court. In the complaint, they contend that the city failed in its duties to keep the area safe for the public and warn of any hidden danger.
