A tree branch fell onto a van during gusty winds on Friday. The end of the branch landed on the van with a woman and dog inside. They were uninjured but the van had some dents and scratches from the tree.

The branch was first reported about 11:45 after it fell near Northeast 123rd Street.

The traffic impact from the branch was minimal as 35th Avenue Northeast is already closed south of there for the Thornton Creek project near Nathan Hale High School.
