INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - A loud boom was loud enough to be heard in the shower if Harold Gallespie's south side home. When he came outside, he saw portions of his tree resting on his two cars.
The trees that are 30 years old, if not older, snapped during the strong storms that moved through early Tuesday morning. The limbs hit Gallespie's home and two vehicles. Leaves and limbs could be found as far away as two doors down and across the street.
Gallespie's pickup is more than a decade old and he says that it will likely be totaled. The other car suffering damage is a little different.
"The car won't be two weeks old until Saturday, I just bought it, haven't even made the first payment on it yet. I waited a long time for this car," Gallespie told 24-Hour News 8 about his damaged 2013 Camero convertible.
