-A A +A

Fire marshal watches as it hits pavement, just missing a vehicle

Traffic backed up the afternoon of Nov. 26 on U.S. 521 heading into Lancaster after a huge tree fell across both southbound lanes just south of the S.C. 5 ramp.
County Fire Marshal Russell Rogers happened to be driving toward Indian Land on the northbound side of 521 about 1:30 p.m. Monday and saw the massive tree collapse onto the pavement.
“Out of the corner of my eye, I saw the top of the tree start to move,” he said. “It fell rapidly until it finally hit the ground as I was approaching the hill.”
