WESTFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

A portion of Root Road in Westfield was closed Tuesday evening after a large tree fell across the roadway, which also brought down wires when it fell.

Police responded to the area of 123 Root Rd. at about 7:45 p.m. and closed the roadway in both directions.

Police officials say the road was closed to traffic because it was completely impassable.

There is no word on when Root Road is expected to reopen. There were no reported injuries.

This is a developing story and Western Mass News will provide updates as more information is made available.
