A tree fell across power lines and onto a car, Thursday morning, causing power outages in the area.
According to East Ridge Fire Chief Mike Williams, at 10:28 a.m, fire, police and an ambulance were dispatched to a vehicle crash with entrapment in the 800 block of Belvoir Avenue.
When first responders arrived they discovered a tree was on top of a vehicle and a person was trapped inside. Hydraulic extrication tools were used to remove the occupant.
Chief Williams said that apparently the occupant of the vehicle suffered only minor injuries and refused transport to a hosptial.
“Great work to all that were involved,” Chief Williams posted on the City of East Ridge Fire & Rescue Facebook page.
