PURCELLVILLE, Va. (AP) — Two people in northern Virginia were seriously injured when a tree fell on a vehicle.
The accident happened in western Loudoun County Friday night, just before 7 p.m. on Purcellville Road.
A tree fell onto a vehicle as the car was moving, according to Loudoun County Fire and Rescue Battalion Chief Tim Menzenworth.
An adult and a child were flown to a hospital in critical condition, Loudoun County spokeswoman Laura Rinehart confirmed with WTOP. A third passenger in the rear of the car, also a child, was uninjured but taken in for evaluation, Rinehart said.
It is not clear what caused the tree to fall.
