BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

A motorist escaped unhurt when a large limb from a pecan tree fell on a utility van Monday afternoon.

It happened as he was driving about 2:30 p.m. in the 800 block of St. Charles Street in Bossier City.

The driver told authorities that the wind was blowing very strong at the time, city spokesman Mark Natale said.

"The tree limb likely came down on St. Charles due to high winds."

The driver also said it was raining so hard that it was difficult to see.

It was a scary situation, he added.

The driver was the only person in the van and was not trapped when the tree fell.

He was able to get out through the passenger side.
