– Falmouth Police report that on Tuesday at approximately 5:10 p.m., they received numerous calls regarding a tree limb falling onto two vehicles as they traveled in the area of 225 Palmer Avenue (Route 28).

One vehicle, a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, was traveling northerly on Palmer Avenue. It was operated by a 58-year-old male from Falmouth. The pickup truck sustained relatively minor damage. The second vehicle, a 2006 Chrysler Sebring, was southbound and was operated by a 60-year-old male from New York. The Sebring sustained heavy front-end damage.

There were no injuries sustained in the crash. The tree limb also took down power lines and the road was closed (and will remain so for at least another hour) while Eversource crews fix the lines. As of 9 p.m., some 600 electric customers were still without power.
