Falling tree injures Accord motorist
ACCORD — A 50-year-old woman was injured Saturday when a large tree branch broke and fell onto the windshield of the car she was driving on Lower Whitfield Road.
Debra J. Fehring of 176 Lower Whitfield Road, Accord, suffered head and facial cuts and complained to emergency responders of neck and leg pain. She was taken to Kingston Hospital by the Kerhonkson-Accord Rescue Squad.
Deputies said the branch fell onto her car, a 2006 Nissan Altima, as she was trying to stop. Her car then rolled off the south side of the roadway and struck a small tree with its open rear door as she tried to get out of the car, deputies said.
