DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A Dayton street reopened Monday morning after a fallen tree forced authorities to shut it down for several hours.

Authorities say the tree came down in the 2400 block of Wayne Avenue, near Epworth Avenue, around 2:30 a.m. Monday.

Police at the scene say it appears dry rot caused the tree to fall.

A passing car ran into the tree, but didn’t suffer any damage.

The tree also brought down a light pole and power lines.

DP&L was called to the scene.

Police shut down Wayne Avenue between Wilmington and Epworth Avenues due to the crash. The road reopened just after 6 a.m. Monday.

Authorities say a street sweeper would be used to clear remaining debris from the road. DP&L also planned to be at the scene to repair lines and a pole damaged by the falling tree.

No one was hurt when the tree fell.
