A Jefferson man was killed Tuesday morning when a tree crashed into his home just hours after Tropical Storm Sandy ripped through the state.
Bruce Latteri, 51, died immediately when the tree crashed into his Nicole Court home at about 7:15 a.m., according to Capt. Eric Wilsusen.
Wilsusen said Morris County Medical Examiner assisted at the scene to remove the victim's body.
The storm also contributed to the deaths of a man and woman in Mendham Township Monday night when a tree fell on their pickup truck. Two children inside the vehicle survived the incident.
