MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A fast-moving storm left its mark in Cumberland County Tuesday night.

In Mechanicsburg on the 100 block of East Portland Street, a tree fell and crushed a man’s pickup truck. The roof was caved in and the truck was a total loss.

Its owner told abc27 he was cooking dinner when the tree fell. He is just happy it didn’t fall on his house, which was without power for hours.

“Just glad it didn't fall on the house and nobody was hurt. The truck can be replaced,” Chris Trostle said.

On Hoover Road in Middlesex Township, a tree fell on live wires, which caught a section of the tree on fire. Crews were called to the scene.

In nearby Silver Spring Township on North Old Stonehouse Road, the storm uprooted a tree and it landed on the power lines. The mess all dangled over a resident’s driveway.
