Driver hospitalized after wind blows tree onto minivan

OSCEOLA, Ind. -- A tree fell on a minivan near the corner of Apple and Adams road in Osceola during the storms Wednesday afternoon.

The Osceola Police Department said 60-mile per hour winds knocked the tree down on top of the minivan.

Fire crews had to use a chain saw to cut the tree off the minivan to get the victim out.

She was then taken by ambulance to the hospital for neck and back pain.

Chief Phillip Brown of the Osceola Police Department says when the weather is bad, drivers need to pay extra attention to conditions on the road - and in the sky.

"Well number one, we can't control nature. Storms happen, old trees fall. When you're driving down a road where trees are hanging low you just have to drive carefully and watch out," said Brown.
