A severe thunderstorm that passed through the Piney Flats area Thursday afternoon tore a section of the roof from of one of the greenhouses at Torbett Plant Farm, 6185 Highway 11E, and sent it crashing into a passing vehicle, according to emergency personnel at the scene. “The only thing that we can confirm right now (is) that there was a serious crash on Bristol Highway,” JCPD Sgt. Van Mominee said late Thursday night. “Our Traffic Homicide Team is investigating that and the details will be released when they get ready.”
