Wind Splits ‘Shawshank’ Oak Tree

An oak tree outside Ohio's Malabar Farm State Park in north-central Ohio played a key role in the the 1994 film The Shawshank Redemption. The tree was hit Friday by straight-line winds that split it down its rotted middle and took out one side. (AP Photo/Akron Beacon Journal, Bob Downing)
