Driver narrowly avoids being crushed by falling tree in Georgia


When Tropical Storm Irma blew into Georgia on Monday, it brought winds strong enough to knock down trees of all sizes.

In shocking dash cam video from Spalding County, the driver of a car was right behind another when he watched it drive right into the path of a falling tree.

The driver who witnessed the incident jumped from his vehicle to assist.

He said the driver in the white car was stunned, but otherwise okay.

As you can see, there was nothing she could do to avoid the falling pine tree.

So she did the only thing she could: slam on the brakes. She was saved by a second and a few inches in a storm that showed no mercy.
