High wind topples huge tree onto car

- This was the scene in Roxborough shortly after a large tree toppled onto a car and the woman driving it at the time had to be rushed to the hospital.

This happened Sunday morning in the 7900 block of Henry Avenue and is blocking the entire road, from side to side.

Unfortunately, the car in the picture under that huge branch was not parked.

Police say there was a woman inside, driving, when high winds knocked the tree onto the road.

She was taken to the hospital for medical attention, but will be OK.

You’ll want to avoid the area during the cleanup.

FOX 29 Weather Authority meteorologist Scott Williams mentioned a wind advisory is in effect for our entire viewing area all day and night, until 6am Monday. Expect gusts of more than 40mph.
