Memphis woman unhurt after tree strikes vehicle

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - A Memphis woman was counting her blessing Saturday after a bizarre accident.

Diane Gordon was driving home along Poplar near Cleveland when a huge tree split and a massive branch pierced through the roof of her SUV.

Gordon said at first she thought she had been struck by a truck.  She is amazed she was not hurt.

"I'm extremely lucky all I have are a few scratches," Gordon said.  "I've got glass all embedded in me."

Part of the tree also smashed the front end of another vehicle, forcing the air bags to deploy.  No one was hurt.
