A white box truck rammed into a tree in Wheaton Monday morning, causing it to topple onto an SUV, Montgomery County police said.

The incident occurred at 11:28 a.m. near the intersection of Randolph Road and Connecticut Avenue, said Angela Cruz, a spokeswoman for Montgomery County Police. The truck was traveling westbound on Randolph Road when it struck both the tree and phone lines.

Both the truck and SUV were damaged, though Ms. Cruz said there were no reported injuries.

Early Monday afternoon, the westbound lanes of Randolph Road were still shut down, but the eastbound lanes had reopened.
