ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — A tree that fell during a storm in Maryland has killed a woman who was sitting in a car waiting for the rain to stop.

News outlets report the woman was a passenger in the vehicle parked in Montgomery County when a tree fell on top of it Thursday night.

County fire Battalion Chief Jay Blake says the woman was pulled out of the car and later died at a hospital.

Blake says at least one other person was in the car. It’s unclear whether they were injured.

He says the tree was probably about 30 feet (9 meters) tall.
