Tree, truck block South Fairview Street

A truck apparently hit an old tree on South Fairview Street about 10 a.m. Tuesday, causing large branches to come crashing down on it and on the street. City fire crews and city police responded immediately and closed the one-way section of South Fairview between Bellefonte Avenue and Bald Eagle Street. This photo was taken looking north toward Bellefonte Avenue. It was not clear where the driver was headed, but it could have been the First Quality plant, which is near the foot of South Fairview. There was no word on whether the driver was injured. The street remained closed until about 2 p.m.
