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.
