LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — A tree that fell on a pickup truck during Hurricane Sandy sent a local couple to the hospital.

Police said a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado pickup was westbound on Brodie Mountain Road at about 6:46 p.m. when the tree crashed down across the road, crushing the truck's cab.

Lanesborough Police and Fire responded to the scene. The driver sustained serious injuries, primarily to his arm, and the passenger, a woman, suffered cuts from the broken windshield. Both were taken to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield by ambulance and the truck was towed from the scene.

The names of the truck's occupants were not available but they were identified as Lanesborough residents.

The area was buffeted by high winds from Monday into Tuesday from the affects of Sandy as she made landfill in New Jersey. There were numerous reports around the county of trees and power lines down. Lanesborough Police reported that they were busy Monday night responding such incidents.
