Fallen tree blocks interstate

William Paine/SWT

This pine tree fell across the right lane of Interstate-81 at approximately 8:10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 18. No accidents were reported as a result of this tree fall as road crews quickly arrived to cut the tree up and haul it away. Accidents did occur in several other areas in Pulaski County and beyond as a result of frozen precipitation.

Heavy precipitation in recent days has resulted in deeply saturated soil. This, in combination with a heavy coating of ice, resulted in this seemingly healthy tree falling into the roadway.
