Overgrown pine tree crashes on car, kills woman

Naples, June 10 - A woman was killed Monday when an overgrown pine tree fell on her car, crushing her inside. Naples firefighters were brought in to remove the body of Cristina Alongi, 40, and used her cell phone to contact family members. Investigators say the tree tipped because its roots did not have enough space to dig in and support its weight as it grew. This is not the first time such a disaster has occurred in the Naples area, authorities said. A 64-year-old was crushed by a tree while waiting in a car for his wife in 2011. And in 1998, a huge branch that snapped off struck and killed a woman.
