Mo­torist’s near miss from fall­ing limb

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News -

A Chan­ny­bearup res­i­dent was lucky to avoid se­ri­ous harm af­ter her car was crushed by a fall­ing tree limb.

At about 5.30pm on June 30, Jenna Bar­nett was trav­el­ling along Stir­ling Road when a tree fell across the bon­net of the car, smash­ing its

wind­screen and crush­ing the bon­net of the car.

Ms Bar­nett said the branch that fell was long enough to reach across both lanes of the road.

“I saw the branches at the top mov­ing as it was com­ing down, so I sud­denly braked and I didn’t quite brake hard

enough I guess,” she said.

Ms Bar­nett was the only per­son in the car at the time.

“Nor­mally one of the kids wants to go with me but I kind of rushed out the door and none of them asked, luck­ily,” she said.
