Driver uninjured as tree falls on vehicle in Burton

From staff reports

Just after 5:30pm, Friday, July 30, the Burton Fire District and Beaufort County EMS responded to a report of a tree falling on a truck on Bluebird Lane with the driver still inside and possibly injured.

Crews arrived on scene to find a tree resting upon a damaged pickup truck. The driver was able to self-extricate and was uninjured.

A large separate tree had also fallen across the street, blocking the roadway, but caused no damages or injuries.

Burton fire officials urge citizens to inspect their yards for dead trees or tree limbs threatening their homes or vehicles. If the trees or limbs cannot be removed, avoid those areas, and consider this risk when deciding whether to evacuate during severe weather.
