CHICAGO — A large tree fell on Lake Shore Drive Friday afternoon that hit two cars and sent one person to the hospital.

The Chicago Fire Department responded to the north lanes in the 1400 block of Lake Shore Drive after the tree fell due to high winds.

Two vehicles were hit and one man was sent to Illinois Masonic Hospital with minor injuries. Northbound traffic was down to one lane as officials removed the tree.

The vehicle involved was heavily damaged.

High winds and waves closed part of the Lakefront Trail Friday as 22 beaches reopened.
