Tree falls onto Truck at Riverside Arts Market

Jacksonville, Fla. -- The thunderstorms that blew across the First Coast this afternoon sent a large oak tree crashing down at Riverside Arts Market.

The tree landed on the Chevy Avalanche truck and trailer of Pamela Crawford.

She says she hear a loud crack and then the tree began to chase her.

"I was running across the road to put some stuff in my truck because I knew it was [about] to be bad weather and before I could get to my truck I heard the crackling and popping of this tree coming down," says Crawford. 

"I turned around and it was over my head almost and I just took off running and screaming with the stuff in my hand."

Crawford says her truck and the trailer are ruined but she says she's grateful she's alive and that the whole ordeal could have been much worse.
