NEWNAN, Ga. (AP) - Authorities in Georgia say a falling tree killed a man when it landed on his van.

Coweta County sheriff’s Lt. Col. James Yarbrough says 47-year-old Larry Adornato of Newnan died after high winds toppled a large oak tree, which then fell on his van Tuesday.

The Newnan Times-Herald (https://bit.ly/29VVwK0 ) reports the trunk of the tree fell in the middle of the driver’s side, crushing the door and roof. The tree also knocked down nearby power lines, causing emergency personnel to deal with potential electrical shock dangers.

Authorities say Adornato had a passenger in the van, who suffered a broken leg.
