Massive Tree Branch Crushes Truck

Marsha Ward woke up to an ugly surprise Thursday morning, Oct. 4. A large limb from an oak tree in front of her house on South Madison Street in La Grange fell onto her pickup truck earlier that morning, crushing the cab. A neighbor reported hearing a loud noise around 4 a.m. Ward said she did not hear anything and only discovered the accident after she woke up. The tree appeared to suffer from some rot in the crotch where the limb attached to the trunk.

The pickup was a green 2002 GMC extended cab. Ward said the City contacted her and agreed to remove the tree.
