Investigators are trying to figure out what caused a tree to suddenly fall outside a civic club Friday evening, killing one woman and injuring another.

Fort Wright police say they were called to the Lookout Heights Civic Club around 5:30 p.m. They say the tree fell on Heather McNamara, 32, of Covington, and Rebecca Wright, 45, of Butler, as they were on a patio outside the civic club.

Police say both women were trapped under the tree when they arrived. They say McNamara died at the scene.

Police say Wright was airlifted to the University of Cincinnati Hospital in critical condition.
