LENOX, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a Sudbury man has died after being struck by a tree while walking back to his car following a James Taylor concert at Tanglewood.

The Berkshire district attorney’s office announced Thursday that 61-year-old Lester Holtzblatt was struck by a 20-feet section of a dead tree while walking with his wife along a Lenox road at about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.

He was taken by ambulance to Berkshire Medical Center where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

The death is under investigation but is considered an accident.
