A tree removal crew that was headed to take down a dangerous tree in Deerfield before it fell on wires in Monday's storms ended up getting struck by that same tree.

Deerfield police and fire crews responded to County Road after the tree toppled over the crew's truck, bringing down wires and trapping one member inside.

Utility workers cut the power off before that man could safely exit the truck.

No one was injured and the road was closed for some time while repairs were made.
