Heavy winds caused a large tree to crash into a car on Interstate 64 Wednesday night.
Traffic came to a halt for about a half an hour while Virginia Department of Transportation workers moved the tree, which fell near Exit 107.
The driver was the only passenger in the vehicle. Police are saying it’s lucky she escaped virtually unscathed.
“It is a very large tree. She is extremely lucky that she wasn't majorly injured,” said Virginia State Police Trooper Peter Serkes. “The car is pretty much totaled. Thankfully she is making it out all right.”
The driver was transported to the University of Virginia Medical Center as a precaution.
