Reminds me of a similar story
I was one day going downhill to work, when I stumbled upon a big rock on the road. Stopped to remove it, noticed a big mark of resinous bark on the road. Shrugged and then continued down on this zig-zag road, just to arrive just below where I'd stopped previously.
A big (by our standard) 15 m long tree for a good 3 tons, was lying across the road, blocking it, and I was the second to arrive so it must had been happening minutes ago.
End of the day, I arrived back with my chainsaw 20 mins later to saw it and noticed it had been chopped by a chainsaw, not fallen from the wind. I also noticed a guy almost hiding behind the dozen cars already piled up in a small van, looking from afar.
The guy was loading wood on a truck 100 meters above the mountain, when he lost one tree, during busy time for the road, and I can tell he had already crapped himself when he came to see if anyone was injured ! He finally took the chainsaw from me, explaining: "let me do it, it's mine after all".
If it had fallen at the moment I was driving down, even my Toyota would have been crushed like an ant under a sledgehammer. Myself included.
