A driver was trapped after a utility pole with live wires crashed into his car in Burtonsville, Maryland.
Around 9:15 a.m., the man was driving on Old Columbia Pike, near Paint Branch High School, when a dead tree fell, bringing down a utility pole and electrical wires on his passing car.
Montgomery County Fire and Rescue had to extricate the driver, and he was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
Elsewhere in the county, an overturned dump truck in Rockville on Southlawn Lane, in the area of the Rockville Ice Arena, closed the roadway. There were no injuries, but fire officials said wires were down across the road.
And much earlier in the morning, around 8:15 a.m., fire officials said a roofer was injured in Aspen Hill after the collapse of a carport.
