Fallen Tree Crushes House

A Glenwood house was crushed Saturday afternoon by a fallen oak tree.

The large tree snapped above its trunk during a thunderstorm shortly after 1 p.m. The severed section of the hollowed-out tree fell in a southeasterly direction before landing on the front portion of a house at 501 N. Vine St.

A neighbor said she notified authorities of the incident after hearing a loud noise and then seeing the crushed house under the tree when she looked down the street.
