WASHINGTON (AP) –Authorities say one person died and several others were injured after a tree fell on a pickup truck in northwest Washington amid a strong snowstorm.

D.C. police spokeswoman Istmania Bonilla identified the man Thursday as Oswaldo Hernandez-Cruz, 41, of Hyattsville, Md.

D.C. fire department spokesman Pete Piringer says the tree fell on the truck on Military Road about 7 p.m. Wednesday, trapping five people inside. He says one was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, and several others were injured.
