Witnesses tell us a bicyclist was almost hit when a tree fell over along the canal in Bushnell’s Basin on Sunday afternoon.

Information is limited at this time, and we’re still trying to get official details from police and firefighters.

The owner of the nearby Hess Gas Station sent us the above video. News10NBC’s Berkley Brean was also there for the incident.

According to witnesses, the bicyclist appeared to be okay. No information on what caused the tree to fall yet.

We’ll continue to keep you updated as more information becomes available.
