A large pine tree fell and hit two vehicles Friday in Salem, N.H., trapping and significantly injuring one of the drivers, officials said.
The tree crashed into the vehicles shortly after 9 a.m. at the corner of Pelham and Stiles roads, officials said. One of the vehicles was crushed beneath the pine, trapping the driver.
Responders extricated the driver after about 15 minutes, using chainsaws and the Jaws of Life, officials said. The driver was taken to Lawrence General Hospital with significant injuries.
The second vehicle had minor damage and its driver was not hurt, officials said.
The tree also damaged high voltage wires and utility crews were responding, officials said.
