CRAWFORD COUNTY, WI (KWWL) -- High winds Wednesday blew a tree onto a moving car in southwest Wisconsin.  It happened on Highway 82 in Freeman Township, about a mile west of Highway 35.

The Crawford County Sheriff's Department says Dennis Sickles of Lansing, Iowa, was driving west on Highway 82 when a large dead cottonwood standing along the highway was blown down.

The tree landed on top of the car.  Pictures show large branches through the windshield. 

Sickles was taken to a hospital in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. 
The vehicle had heavy damage.
