Ridgewood NJ, Multiple vehicles were damaged on Thursday afternoon, 07/08, when a large tree toppled into a parking lot of the Ridge Elementary School on West Ridgewood Avenue, Ridgewood. Typically, the parking lot would be empty at this time of year. However, the school building was being used to house a summer enrichment program, and the lot was relatively full of vehicles belonging to the parents of participants who were about to be dismissed from the program for the day. Fortunately, no injuries were reported as there was no one was in the lot when the tree toppled. A Ridgewood Police patrol officer was dispatched to process property damage reports, and to assist the owners of lightly damaged vehicles in removing them from the parking lot.
