A Eugene couple has filed a lawsuit against Yosemite National Park over injuries they say they suffered when a park worker felled a tree onto a highway, crushing their car. The suit says no warning signs were posted on Sept. 16, 2008, when Lisa Thorpe drove her Honda CRV along Tioga Pass Road with her partner, David Stone, in the passenger seat. It alleges that park employee Jared Brown was felling trees nearby, cutting one in a way that caused another tree to fall “suddenly and unexpectedly into the roadway, smashing the car.”
