Huge Tree Branch Falls Into Oncoming Traffic
Police say a large tree branch broke off and feel across Highway 72 in Tuscumbia near Willingham Road, into oncoming traffic.
According to officers, a motorcyclist tried to avoid the branch, but lost control and slid into the tree.
The motorcyclist was air lifted to a hospital but officers on the scene say he was alert and talking.
Crews used chainsaws to cut the tree up and a bull dozer pushed the tree off the road.
West bound traffic was diverted for nearly an hour as crews cleaned up the street.
