This dash cam footage – taken on the Maroondah Highway in Australia, shows the incredible power of a wind storm. It starts with branches and debris from the forest raining on the road, and then a huge gum tree falls right in front of this guy’s truck. The car on the other side of the road also stops as trees start to collapse in front of them.
Luckily both drivers stopped in just the right places, another few feet and it would have been a different story. The dash cam driver said: “One more second — in fact even part of a second — would have put me either under the tree or into the tree.”
