Police say two people have died after a rotted tree fell onto their car in Abington.

Police said the car was driving down a residential street on Sunday morning when the tree fell onto the car, smashing its roof.

Officials say the two people in the car were taken to South Shore Hospital with life-threatening injuries. They were later pronounced dead. Police haven't released their identities.

It's not immediately clear whether high winds in the area caused the tree to fall.
