Motorist dies after tree falls on his car in Pa.

    A motorist has died after a tree fell onto his car in Radnor Township.

    Police say they received a report of a car crushed by a tree at Sproul Road and Sunny Hill Lane shortly before 5 p.m. Monday. Emergency responders had to cut the roof off the car to remove the man, who was not identified. He was taken to Paoli Hospital with head injuries and died there a short time later.

    An investigation determined that after the tree struck the victim’s car, it crossed the road and hit another vehicle. The occupants of that vehicle were not injured.

    The road is expected to be closed through Tuesday morning so the tree can be removed and downed power lines replaced.
