Mother, 12-year-old daughter rescued after tree topples onto car


Police and Fire responded to people trapped in a Ford Escape after a massive tree fell on the car at Grove Ave. just off of Hudson Dr.

It happened around 7 PM.

It took rescue workers two hours to get the 12-year-old girl and her mom out of the car. Police say they were both conscious.

The teen was transported to Akron Children's Hospital and her mom was taken to Akron General.

Their conditions are unknown at this time, but they do not appear to be life threatening.

Police say a crane was used to help remove the victims.
