An elderly man driving a vehicle in Fallbrook, California, succumbed to injuries when he got involved in an accident involving a massive tree, an article of CW6 reported on January 9.

According to information coming from the state’s Highway Patrol, the single vehicle accident happened at about 8:30 a.m. on North County road.
