Based on press reports, this unnamed motorist was driving his Honda CR-V compact SUV on the main road at Alhaji Masha area of Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere side of Lagos state, when a gigantic tree beside the road suddenly landed on his car. The reports claim that heavy downpour accompanied by storms had caused the sudden uprooting of the tree which fell just at the exact time the SUV was passing, making it to land on the car instead of the ground.

According to reports by TRIBUNE, the incident happened sometime around 6.14 pm in the evening and the tree basically destroyed the Honda CR-V SUV’s mirrors, bonnet, windscreen, and most parts of the vehicle’s front side. However, the driver escaped unhurt.
