SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - A pine tree came apart and smashed a parked car along with hitting a building during Wednesday night's rain.

No one was hurt.

The tree broke on Anapamu near Olive Street.  That corridor is known for landmark Italian Stone Pines, some dating back 100 years.

During the drought several came down.

The city has a focused watering program there to keep the trees from diseases or impacts from insects.
