“We are very thankful there were no serious injuries,” Dunwoody police wrote in a Facebook post that included the video.

The driver was taken to hospital and treated for a few minor cuts, local station WSBTV reports. The tree also caused traffic delays while crews cleaned up the debris.

The storm knocked down several trees, blocked many roads and triggered floods across Georgia on Thursday afternoon.
