People were at the market and street fair when the 30-foot-tall tree toppled at the plaza on Main Street at 10:15 a.m.

The youngest injured was a child just under 2 years old, who suffered minor injuries, while the oldest was 73.

“It was extremely windy down there,” said Martinez police Sgt. Steve Gaul.

The market, street fair and a “Trunk or Treat” Halloween event that had been scheduled to start at 10 a.m. were all canceled.
