High winds yesterday, March 2, caused a large pine tree to snap and fall on a vehicle driven by a 78-year-old man on Pond Road in Sidney.

A branch from the tree broke through the dashboard and impaled a 79-year-old woman in the passenger seat.

According to WGME, the woman is in critical condition. The man suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
