CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A woman was rushed to the hospital Saturday night after a tree fell on a trailer in north Charlotte, according to Medic.

It happened around 8 p.m. in the 5200 block of Victoria Ave. Medic said the victim suffered "traumatic injuries" and was taken to Atrium Health’s Carolinas Medical Center.

In all, two trees came down on three mobile homes. A 15-year-old girl was inside one of the trailers at the time.

"I ran down there to get her out and she was already out, thank God, but she could've been smushed," said neighbor Helen Pitts.

A storm swept through the Charlotte area earlier Saturday. Neighbors told NBC Charlotte the trees were so old, they were afraid more would come down.

"It was really dark out here, and it felt like a little twister. The wind picked up real bad and stuff was flying everywhere," another neighbor said.

The American Red Cross was helping residents who were displaced.
