Just got back n town was anyone hurt or killed by the fallen tree on Sun night prior to mission rd?
Our condolences to you, pamperedchef. How very sad. My husband always worries about me driving that way because of the falling rocks, but I hadn't considered the trees. I do remember the lady who was killed on Rt 9 a while back. Seems freaky, but now very understandable. Something else to be mindful of.
MM83- There were three people in the car that was crushed by the tree during this last weekends storm. The driver is the son of a friend of mine. All three were removed from the vehicle and transported with minor injuries. Very fortunate considering that from pictures I saw on her Facebook page the tree appears to have landed across the dashboard of the vehicle.
"BRIAN, Close the window! You're letting all the Stank out...." "Ahh, ahh, ahh and boom goes the dynamite."
DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS(It's not nice to pick on retards.)
Wow, that is lucky for them.
I also had no idea that PamperedC's spouse was the person killed by the other tree. I am so sorry for her (and your loss) of a friend and spouse.

Wow scarey stuff. I noticed several came down after this last storm. Glad no one was seriously hurt.

Thanks for update Brian. Hopefully this will be a wake up call for the landowner or DoH!!!! There are still more leaning badly thru there
Willis I spoke with my friend and both she and her son agreed to share the photos of the vehicle so people can see the type of devastation that a tree can cause when it falls on a vehicle.
My suggestion would be for one of our county or state level candidates to use these photos and ask for funding from the state to have suspect or leaning trees trimmed or removed from along the heavier traveled routes where it is more probable that a falling tree will come into contact with a motorist.
Photos DO SPEAK eloquently to the issue, dsonb. Just scant inches separate what was and what could have been. Please thank your friend for sharing.
I am so thankful that no one was killed in that tree fall incident. I had heard about it and was devastated. What amazes me is that if you look at the interior of the vehicle, you would think that they had their legs pinned in the car and that it could have amputated their legs. They are some lucky people that made it through that. If you look at my husband's vehicle, it is really only the windshield and roof of the vehicle that is damaged. If you compared the two vehicles and were asked which vehicle had a fatality, I think you would choose the other car, not my husbands. But it goes to show you that timing is everything. Had it been a second later, all of those in that vehicle may have been killed.
