November 7, 2016

A Memerambi resident was lucky to escape injury when a large tree suddenly fell across his driveway on Saturday evening.

The man had just been at his car when half of the tree unexpectedly broke away and fell, crushing the back of the vehicle.

Fortunately, the tree fell away from the nearby house.

SES volunteers from Kingaroy were called to assist at the scene at 6:30pm.

They used chainsaws to break up the tree and clear the driveway.

A tow-truck removed the crushed vehicle from under the branches.
