VIDEO: New Jersey Officer Struck by Tree While Clearing Branch from Road

A New Jersey police officer who responded to a call of a large branch blocking part of the road ended up being struck by a falling tree in Ringwood Friday morning.

Ringwood Police Chief Joseph Walker said the tree fell on Officer Douglas Faber on Greenwood Lake Turnpike around 6:45 a.m.

Faber, 33, had gotten out of his car to move the branches when the larger tree fell and hit him.

He reportedly broke his wrist and received 13 stiches on the top of his head, WABC TV reports.
