The Roselle, Illinois police department posting a picture of a car with a 15-foot tree sticking out of it on their Facebook page with this description:
A few weeks ago, a Roselle police officer saw a car driving southbound on Roselle Road with a 15-foot tree embedded in the front grill of the car. After stopping the driver, he also noticed the airbags had been deployed (apparently from hitting the tree). After an investigation, the Roselle officer arrested the driver for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol.
Yet another reason why you should not drink and drive!
This dashcam video actually shows her driving around with the tree sticking out of her car:
It happens so fast but the reporter, Alex Savage, managed to jump out of the way in the nick of time. He posted a follow up video on Facebook assuring everyone he was okay and crediting his photographer, Chip Vaughan, with shouting the alert that saved his life.
Close Call!! Almost got hit by a car live on-air, heart still pounding.
