A tourist attraction in California is no more.

Pioneer Cabin Tree in the Calaveras Big Trees State Park in Calaveras County came crashing down on Sunday.

The ancient tree had a hollowed-out tunnel big enough for cars to drive through.

It was down following several powerful storms.

It is not known how old the tree was, however sequoias can live for more than 3,000 years.

They are known as the largest trees in the world by volume.
