Two Fallen Trees, Two Smashed Cars, Same Guy

The most recent storm to hammer the Sacramento region seemed to have it out for one person in particular -- Gerogiy Karpekin. "You know, life’s full of peaks and valleys, man," Karpekin told FOX40. Karpekin was at Sacramento City College Wednesday evening when the winds picked up. He later found out he’d need a ride home from the Land Park-area campus.
"I walked up to my truck and I saw it was ’taco’d’ around a tree," he said. Karpekin’s use of "taco" as a verb is apt, because his Ford F-150 now resembles the shape of a taco shell after a giant eucalyptus tree fell right in the middle of it.
