Tree limb falls on car with man, baby inside

LONGVIEW, WA (KPTV) -

A middle school teacher and his infant daughter narrowly escaped when a tree limb fell on top of their car, totaling it.

Nate Nielsen says he was driving down Nichols Boulevard on Tuesday afternoon when he heard a loud cracking sound.

Then, he says, a 30-foot limb from an elm tree crashed onto the roof of his car.

Nielsen says glass shards flew inside, cutting his arm, but he says he feels lucky that his 7-month-old daughter was not hurt.

However, his car was totaled in the wreck, and he will be working with his insurance company to try and replace it.
