MENDHAM - (AP) - Authorities say three people in northern New Jersey died in accidents involving trees that were toppled by superstorm Sandy.

Mendham Township police say a man and a woman were killed and two children were injured when a large tree fell on their pickup truck around 7:30 p.m. Monday. Authorities say the children's injuries are not considered life-threatening, but further details on the four victims, including their names, were not disclosed.

The accident occurred around 7:30 p.m. Monday as high winds buffeted the state. Morris County prosecutors say the tree was estimated to be approximately 24-36 inches in diameter.

Hawthorne police say a 77-year-old borough man was killed around 7:15 p.m. Monday when a tree crashed into his house in the Passaic County community. No other injuries were reported.
