Tree falls on truck at Macon hospital

A tree fell and totaled a patient's car at the Medical Center of Central Georgia this morning.

No one was inside the car at the time.

"I'm just glad we weren't in it," Otis Bryant said. "I believe I would've been crushed with it."

It happened around 9 a.m., according to Louis Pounds, a Medical Center police officer.

Public works crews were on-scene sawing the heavy tree off the pick-up truck.

The top of the Ford crushed, and the windows shattered.

Bryant says he still hasn't mentioned the damage to his wife, who is being treated at the hospital.

"I was upstairs visiting my wife in the ICU and I got a call from the police officer saying a tree had fell on my truck. I asked, 'Was it hurt?' He said it crushed it," Bryant said. "And it did."

Bryant says the couple does have another truck, but they'll have to travel back to their hometown, Ocilla, to get it.

Ocilla is about 2 hours south of Macon.
