CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio - A 60-year-old Akron man died Friday morning in Cuyahoga Falls after a large tree branch fell on his car.

Robert Musch was driving his car along Front Street, near 2nd Street at around 5:45 a.m. when a large tree branch fell onto his car. Police say he was on the way to work when it happened.

Musch had to be extricated from his vehicle and was taken to Akron City Hospital. He was pronounced dead a short time later.

Police believe that the heavy rains of the past few days contributed to the branch falling.

We talked to Musch's son who told us his dad had just lost his wife a few weeks ago and was just getting back to work. He was also a loving father and grandfather.
