CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A possible water main break may have caused a large tree to fall in east Charlotte, according to officials.

The tree fell around 2:30 p.m. Friday at a home on Pecan Avenue, landing on a homeowner's truck.

WBTV spoke to the homeowner, who said he was sitting in his living room when he heard a large crash sound. He went outside and was surprised to see the tree had fallen.

Officers at the scene told WBTV they believe a water main located beneath the tree had broken and caused the fall, but they were waiting on City Officials to confirm.
