TREE_TRUCK1

Cody Ryman, crew leader for the Woodstock Public Works Department, cuts this tree off of a tractor trailer from his bucket lift on Wednesday morning at 156 N. Main St. Merchant Grocery Company driver Marcellus Duncan, 24, of Culpeper, was parking the tractor trailer along the curb when the top of the trailer hit tree branches and split the Bradford pear tree. The tree fell onto his truck and town employees worked for almost an hour to remove the tree in a way to avoid further damaging the truck. Woodstock police officer Lonnie Sherfey estimated damage to the truck at $1,000. No charges were filed.
