A Charlotte, North Carolina man is lucky to be alive after strong winds during a storm brought a massive tree crashing down on his C4 Corvette.
Sonny Dixon says the storm got so bad he couldn’t see in front of him, according to local news affiliate WBTV.
“Couldn’t see the highway. Couldn’t see any places you could pull over and park until the rain slowed up. Couldn’t see anything,” he said.
Suddenly, the giant tree came crashing down.
“I just didn’t know what was going on with all the glass coming from everywhere. I looked around like this and there was a tree right behind my head.”
Thankfully, neighbors spotted his car with the tree on top of it and rushed to begin extracting him from the car. Within minutes, first responders arrived to assist.
“Blood was coming from everywhere, and I didn’t know how I was gonna get out of this car and I just started praying,” he said.
Dixon isn’t worried about the Corvette; he’s thankful he’s alive with just cuts and bruises. His family believes a roll bar braced the impact and kept the tree from utterly caving the roof in.
