UVa Police: 6 Injured When Tree Falls onto Tents

Posted:
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP)- University of Virginia police say six people were hospitalized after a large section of a tree toppled onto tents at a farmers market.

Lt. Melissa Fielding says the incident occurred Thursday afternoon at the University of Virginia Medical Center, where a farmers market had been set up for U.Va. employees.

Police said injuries ranged from minor to serious, but none were considered life-threatening.

Charlottesville Fire Chief Charles Werner says that the split apparently was caused by rotting wood.
