Downed power lines

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A large tree, possibly weakened by Monday night's heavy rain and strong thunderstorm winds, fell Tuesday morning on Albemarle Road, crushing a car and bringing down power lines.

The tree fell near Mallard Drive, between Lawyers and Harrisburg roads, blocking the road for several hours Tuesday.

A passerby, Kevin Stewart, said the tree "just fell for no apparent reason" during a wind gust Tuesday morning.

He said the driver of a black sedan tried to avoid the falling tree but was struck. The driver apparently was not injured, according to police.

Duke Energy crews repaired the lines and put up a new pole.
