Fallen Tree on Merritt Injures Woman, Infant

A woman and infant sustained minor injuries after a tree fell on their car Monday night as they drove along the Merritt Parkway south near Exit 42 in Westport.

Westport and Fairfield firefighters responded to the accident, which happened at 7:21 p.m. When firefighters arrived, they found a large tree stretched across both lanes, resting on top of a Toyota Avalon. The tree had crushed the car's roof, broke out several windows and punctured the radiator, Assistant Fire Chief William Dingee said.

The woman and child were taken to Bridgeport Hospital for evaluation. A flatbed truck towed the car, and the accident was cleared at about 8:25 p.m.
