NEWPORT NEWS (AP) — Officials say a second person in Virginia has died from a tree toppled by Hurricane Irene.

Virginia Department of Emergency Management spokesman Bob Spieldenner says a tree fell on a car in Brunswick County and killed someone inside the vehicle. He did not have any more details.

Earlier Saturday, an 11-year-old boy was killed when a tree crashed through his Newport News apartment.

City spokeswoman Cleder Jones says the unidentified boy and his mother were in the apartment when a large tree fell shortly after noon. Jones says the boy's mother was able to make it out of the apartment uninjured. The boy was pronounced dead at the scene.
