HOUSTON (AP) - The Harris County Sheriff's office says a 25-year-old man has died after strong storms that moved through the Houston area on Christmas Day knocked a tree onto his pickup truck.

Deputy Thomas Gilliland says the incident occurred at about 9:40 a.m. in northwest Harris County.

He says the man, whose identity has not been released, was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency responders.

Gilliland says the man was driving a Ford F-150 pickup truck when the tree came down on the vehicle.

Meanwhile, the Midwest was bracing for heavy snow and ice. Freezing rain already was blamed for a 21-vehicle pileup in Oklahoma.
