BOONTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Police in Boonton Township, New Jersey released a video of an enormous tree falling onto a road, and snagging a pickup truck, as dangerous winds blew over the weekend.

As he was driving, the tree snapped and came down over the entire road. Tintle’s squad car dashcam video shows the moment the tree fell.
Tintle was able to maneuver his car away from the main part of the tree trunk to avoid a serious collision. But a Chevrolet pickup truck ended up partially upright on top of the fallen tree after briefly going airborne, police said.
Neither Tintle nor the pickup truck driver was injured.
Powerful winds toppled trees and caused damage around the area Sunday.
