DAYTON — Two large trees were apparently struck by lightning Tuesday afternoon as a batch of heavy rain moved through the area.
A large tree fell on a Jeep on La Belle Street in Dayton, and across town, a branch believed to weigh 2,000 pounds landed atop a vehicle in the 100 block of Five Oaks Avenue in Dayton.
Sidney More was headed to the store this afternoon, driving on Five Oaks Avenue.
“I stopped at the stop sign and I heard a big boom, boom clack! And then I see a big light come down and then hit this tree.
“There was like a little fire when it hit the tree and then the tree fell,” he said. “That’s when it hit the street. It fell hard and fast.”
More said he backed up and went back home. “I did not go to the store. I did not want to take no chances.”
Lightning is reportedly the reason the tree on La Bell Street toppled.
Crews were working to remove the tree from the road.
No injuries were reported in either incident.

DAYTON — The victim killed in a wrong-way crash Tuesday morning in downtown Dayton was identified as 87-year-old Opal Clouse of Dayton by the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office.
Officers were dispatched to a report of a crash with one person trapped near the intersection of West Fifth Street and South Perry Street around 9 a.m.
Investigators said a red car traveled the wrong direction on West Fifth Street and crashed into the silver car, sending the silver car into a pole. Investigators didn’t indicate which vehicle Clouse was in.
Police said excessive speed doesn’t appear to be a factor, and it is not uncommon to see drivers travel the wrong way on Dayton’s one-way streets.
“With going the wrong way, there is no traffic device to tell you that you should be slowing down for a red light,” Lt. James Mullins said.
I’m sure the person was driving normal speeds and had the collision.”
The intersection was reopened by police around 11:30 a.m.
