This Just In...
Deerfield Police Department, Massachusetts: Just before 7:00 PM tonight Sgt Krusiewski and Officer Puchalski along with Deerfield Fire Department and South County EMS responded to County Road for a tree and wires down over a tree crew truck. Earlier thunderstorms made the tree in question slant over but not come down. WMECO sent one of their contracted tree crews to take down the tree prior to it falling on the wires. Unfortunately they didn't get to complete the job in time. The tree came down pulling down wires snapping a pole. One tree crew employee was in the truck when it all came down. He had to wait for power to be turned off before he could safely exit the truck. A short section of County Road will be closed while repairs are made.
