Guardian Angel, Perhaps, in Freak Accident

(Michigan City, IN) - It's a miracle, perhaps, that nobody was injured when a tree fell on top of a moving vehicle near Michigan City.


Harold Hanlin, 59, was traveling U.S 20 near Indiana 212 on Thursday when a large falling tree landed on top of his 2021 Chevy Silverado, according to La Porte County Police.


The tree, fortunately, made an impact behind the passenger compartment of the truck. However, the cap on the truck's bed broke loose, flew off, and struck a 2010 Ford Fusion traveling from behind. Police said there were no injuries.


Hanlin is from Bridgman, while the other driver, Glenn Gore, 71, is from Three Oaks. There were strong crosswinds at the time the tree came tumbling down.
