Elderly Lanark woman killed by falling tree branch Sunday
Ontario Provincial Police say an 80-year-old woman has died after being struck by a falling tree branch Sunday afternoon.
OPP said Gail Greene was in her yard in Ferguson Falls near the Village of Lanark when she was hit by the branch at around 3 p.m.
She died in hospital.
Her death comes one day after a massive storm blew across eastern Ontario, damaging countless trees. Police did not directly attribute Greene’s death to the storm but said it was not suspicious and an investigation is ongoing.
At least eight people were killed Saturday as the storm moved across Ontario.
Ontario Provincial Police say a Bancroft-area resident was hit by a stray bullet over the weekend.
Police in Ontario are issuing a warning after a couple lost more than $370,000 in a cryptocurrency scam.
Emergency crews responded to a crash on Centennial Lake Road, between Scully Lake Road and Chimo Road, in Greater Madawaska just after 1 p.m. on Sunday.
