    A Main Line resident landed in the hospital this morning after getting struck by a falling tree limb.

    The unidentified man was struck while outside his home on the unit block of Shirley Road in Narberth, Pa., according to Lower Merion Police.

    He was rushed to the Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania with an apparent head injury. Police didn’t immediately reveal the man’s exact condition, but they did say he is expected to survive.

    The tree limb appeared to be rather large and it fell onto a parked silver Jeep Wrangler in the driveway of the home. The road in front of the home was partially blocked as well.

    Tree limbs fell all over the region this morning due to an ice storm. Many of those limbs took out wires. In total, more than 500,000 customers lost power at the height of power issues.
