Gary Moore awoke at 2:35 a.m. this morning to a loud pop and then the sound of a tree crashing on the family car. The tree also torn off some siding and damaged the roof of the Moore home on South Main Street in Albion.

Moore, an Albion town justice, said a 2011 Chevy Traverse (pictured above) is likely totaled from the fallen tree.
