LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- A traffic accident involving three vehicles caused by a fallen tree limb has sent two men to Gwinnett Medical with serious injuries.

The accident happened when a City of Lawrenceville employee was driving south on Stone Mountain Street near Constitution Boulevard around 1:30 p.m. in stormy weather, according to police.

A big tree limb crashed down on the cab and smashed through the windshield of the man's Lawrenceville Public Works pick-up truck, causing serious injuries.

The limb fell off, but the man's truck continued moving for another block, and crashed into the back of a small brown pick-up.

That truck, and an SUV in front of it were stopped by a parked garbage truck in front of both vehicles.

The driver of the brown truck was injured upon impact, but the driver of the SUV was not hurt.
