Virginia State Police investigated a case involving a tree falling onto a car in Wise County that occurred this past weekend. Local authorities have stated that a Nissan was traveling North on Rte 23 when the tree landed on her vehicle. The Nissan then ran off the road and wound up in a ditch. The investigation discovered that the tree fell as it was being cut down. Commonwealth Attorney Charles H. Slemp III said that Tony Osborne age 35, of Pound, has been charged with Involuntary Manslaughter, and Trespassing. The female was Iris Walker, age 64 from Kentucky. The charge of Involuntary Manslaughter is explained as the accidental death caused by someone's reckless or careless behavior in taking on an illegal act that's not a felony, or a legal act that's just done improperly.
