An intense wind storm on December 29, recorded by one driver’s dashboard camera, wreaked havoc on trees lining the Maroondah Highway in Australia.

Watch as the driver narrowly escapes death while the trees fall around him in this freak storm.

The storm, which registered wind speeds of more than 100 kilometers per hour, caused dozens of trees to fall onto the road almost simultaneously. 

Driving in the ‘bush’ in Australia during storm season is notoriously dangerous, and children are taught from a young age to be weary of freak storms such as these.
