RALEIGH — A 32-year-old woman was killed today when a tree crashed down on a house on Rock Quarry Road.
The victim, Sabrina Allen of Middlesex, was fatally injured late Sunday afternoon when a thunderstorm swept through the area and uprooted a large tree.
The tree, nearly 4-feet in diameter, crashed down on the home at 5332 Rock Quarry Road, shortly before 6 p.m., according to Jeffrey Hammerstein, district chief for Wake County EMS.
Three people were home at the time, Hammerstein said. Allen was in the bedroom.
Wayne Vick, 45, and Kionna Vick, 18, were transported to WakeMed with what emergency crews described as injuries that did not appear to be life threatening, Hammerstein added.
