A Greenwich woman remains hospitalized with serious injuries after a tree fell on her van on U.S. 250 in Bronson Township on Thursday afternoon.

Troopers with the Norwalk post of the state Highway Patrol said Karol A. Hurley, 44, of 10 Seminary St., Greenwich, was driving north on U.S. 250 when a tree in a field on the west side of the road fell onto utility wires and onto the roadway, striking Hurley. Her vehicle came to rest under the downed tree.

Charles Swann II, 54, of 1525 Rome Greenwich Road, was driving south on U.S. 250, struck Hurley's vehicle in the rear and came to rest past the tree. Swann was not injured.

Hurley was listed in critical condition Friday afternoon at Cleveland MetroHealth Medical Center, where she was flown after the wreck.

Hurley's passengers, Kenneth O. Hurley Jr., 59, of 10 Seminary St. and Karen S. Pelham, 50, of the same address, reported possible injuries and were taken to Fisher-Titus Medical Center by North Central EMS.

Kenneth Hurley was treated and released, while Pelham was not listed in the hospital directory as a patient on Friday.
