It could always be worse... *PIC*




I don't know what happened, but I hope nobody was inside at the time!

There was an old F150 in my neighborhood that had a tree fall on it, but it was sideways not from the rear end. Probably no one in the vehicle when it happened (hit from the rear).

I had to slam on my brakes in a 59 VW and let a huge pine tree hit the road in front of me in high winds. The tree barely missed the school bus in front of me and I had to stop and move parts of the tree to get down the road. Tall enough to cover four lane of a divided highway.

regards
Mech

No, just someone I saw driving down the road.

Trees can be vicious:

Falling tree kills biker on Kancamagus

Sorry, the Union Leader doesn't have active links going that far back. This was the best I could come up with.

A good reason to hug your trees occasionally :-)
