CHICAGO (CBS) — One person suffered minor injuries Friday afternoon, when a large tree fell over into the northbound lanes of Lake Shore Drive between Division Street and North Avenue, hitting two cars.

Chicago Fire Department officials said high winds blew the healthy tree into the northbound lanes around 1400 North Lake Shore Drive.

Two cars were hit, and one person was taken to the hospital in good condition.

It appeared four lanes of Lake Shore Drive were blocked as fire crews worked to cut up and remove the fallen tree, with cars getting past on the far right lane.

City officials said all northbound lanes reopened shortly before 3:30 p.m.
