DULUTH - Gwinnett County emergency crews spent nearly an hour Friday morning freeing a man trapped in his vehicle by a fallen tree.
Fire Capt. Tommy Rutledge said the man, whose name has not been released, appeared to have suffered severe internal injuries as a result of the incident. He said the man was pinned from his waist down by the tree.
Rutledge said the man was traveling toward downtown Duluth on Abbott's Bridge Road around 10:30 a.m. when the tree came crashing down.
The Georgia State Patrol is investigating.
