HOCKESSIN, Del. --Delaware Attorney General Matt Denn and his son avoided serious injuries when a tree fell on their moving car, totaling it.
WDEL-FM reports Denn and his son were traveling through Hockessin when the tree fell into the street, striking the car. The impact peeled the roof off the vehicle.
Delaware Department of Justice spokesman Carl Kanefsky tells WDEL and the News Journal it was freak accident that could have been far worse. He says neither was seriously injured.
Both outlets report Denn was treated at the scene and his son was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
