ATLANTA -

At least one person is hurt after a massive tree came crashing down onto Ponce de Leon, near the Fernbank Museum, on Tuesday afternoon.

Ponce was closed in both directions near Lakeshore Drive as crews worked to clear away the debris. The road has since been re-opened.

An SUV was trapped under the fallen tree. Witnesses said a woman was bleeding but alert after she was pulled from the vehicle.

It took firefighters about 90 minutes to clear the road.
