CHARLTON, N.Y. (NEWS10)– A family lucky to be alive after Monday’s storm sent a tree crashing down on their car, trapping them all inside.
That large tree fell around 9:15 Monday night on the corner of Peaceable Street and Birchbox Road in Charlton. A mom, her three kids, and their dog were all inside a PT Cruiser, just around the corner from their home. That car suffering minor damage, and thankfully, no injuries were reported.
That tree also took down a telephone pole, several wires, and a transformer, making it difficult to get everyone out of the car.
