Reports suggested that the incident took place at about 10 am. An image that was circulated on social media showed the tree lying across the two-lane road, the road divider and on a white lorry near a traffic junction.

A dashcam footage of the incident was posted on YouTube. It showed the tree crashing on the road and blocking vehicles on one side.
