A large tree fell Tuesday afternoon on a pickup in the 2900 block of Old Salisbury Road, but the truck's occupants were not injured, authorities said.

Winston-Salem police blocked Old Salisbury Road near Jasper Lane, Darwick Road and Paragon Drive for a crew to remove the tree, police said. That section of Old Salisbury Road was closed for several hours, but reopened Tuesday night.

Duke Energy Corp. reported that 1,374 of its customers had lost power Tuesday night, according to its website.
