Uprooted tree brings down power lines in Wingdale

NEWBURGH – The storm that hammered the region on Tuesday claimed three lives.

A woman was killed when a tree fell on her car as she was driving on Albany Post Road in the Town of Newburgh Tuesday afternoon, Governor Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday.

An 11-year-old girl, Gina Garzon, was killed in the City of Newburgh when a tree fell on her mother’s car as they were unpacking groceries.

Ramapo Police, meanwhile, said an 80-year-old Chestnut Ridge woman died from injuries she sustained when a tree fell on top of her car as she drove during Tuesday’s storm on Red Schoolhouse Road in that village. The accident occurred around 4:45 p.m.

Governor Andrew Cuomo said that while property can be repaired and replaced, the loss of life is unfortunate and heartbreaking.
