Tree, truck block South Fairview Street

This truck apparently hit this tree directly or indirectly, causing large branches to come crashing down on the street and the truck. This photo was taken looking north on South Fairview Street toward Bellefonte Avenue.

This truck reportedly hit an old tree on South Fairview Street about 10 a.m. today, knocking branches onto the truck and the street, closing it for what could be most of the day.

City fire crews and city police responded immediately and closed that one-way section of South Fairview between Bellefonte Avenue and Bald Eagle Street.

It was unclear where the operator was heading, however, it could be the driver was trying to make their way to the First Quality plant, which is near the foot of South Fairview.

It was also unclear if the driver was injured.
