Falling tree crushes SUV
A powerful storm system passed through the New York area Tuesday, knocking down hundreds of trees and branches. A tree fell on an SUV in Newburgh City, in Orange County, trapping a girl inside. Her mother had just parked the SUV in their driveway on South Robinson Avenue when the tree snapped. Firefighters used power tools to cut away tree limbs to try to rescue her, but she died. A man recorded video of their efforts. He said the tree snapped at its base as that violent thunderstorm moved in. The girl's mother stood outside the car. She was in tears as the fire department worked.
