Man Hit by Tree Branch Driving Through Charlevoix County

Posted: Updated:

It was a dangerous experience for one man behind the wheel when a portion of a tree fell onto the cab of his pick-up truck.

It happened Monday on Bear River Road, near the Walloon Lake Country Club, where wind damaged around 40 trees.

The driver, Tim Walker, went off the road, through a small field and into the woods.

He was knocked unconscious after the accident, but at some point was able to walk out to get help.

He says he only remembers waking up in the emergency room.

He has a concussion, and a couple little scrapes, but is otherwise ok.
