Large tree topples power lines in Wellesley

A large tree fell in a Wellesley family’s front yard on Tuesday toppling power lines. 

High winds and the storm uprooted the tree causing a transformer to explode and power lines to fall. 

The incident happened on Upway Road at around 6 p.m. 

Power poles nearby also snapped. 

"We heard a loud crash and a flash of light from the transformer" said witness Max Hano. 

Neighbors say a babysitter and three kids were home at the time of the incident. 

Nobody was injured.
