BATON ROUGE – Two people were taken to the hospital Thursday with moderate injuries after a tree crashed down on a Blackwell Street home.

One mother told Brett Buffington that she heard a “crack” before it crashed down on top of her son and neighbors around 4 p.m. Thursday.

An ambulance transported both people to the hospital. Sources tell WBRZ that both people suffered minor injuries. 

The woman who owned the tree said she had already contacted her insurance company in the last several days because she was worried it would fall.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
