Norma Sizemore, 79, of London, is in serious condition, according to UK Hospital, after the car she was riding in was crushed by a falling tree during a thunderstorm in Laurel County.

The Laurel County Sheriff's Office said Sizemore's husband, Butler Sizemore, 81, of London, was driving on Rachael Road, 11-miles south of London on Monday afternoon, when he saw a large tree falling in front of his Toyota Prius.

Investigators said Sizemore stopped and backed-up, but he couldn't get out of the way of the falling tree, which crushed the car.

Investigators said Butler Sizemore was able to get out of the car on his own, but his wife Norma was trapped in the vehicle.  It took the jaws of life to get her out.

The couple was taken to a hospital in London before Norma was transferred to UK Hospital in Lexington.
