A driver who was driving through Triq il-Kbira, Lija said that he counts himself lucky after a large part of a tree which was on the side of the road, fell in his path.
The incident happened at around 4am when part of the tree broke off from its trunk and ended up in the middle of the road.
As the video and photos show, the tree blocked the road which leads from Lija to Mosta near the cemetery.
Members of the Civil Protection Department were called, who removed any possible danger from the road.
This accident is reminiscent of the tragedy on 10 February 2018 when Dan Udrea lost his life in a tragic accident in Imrieħel when a tree fell on his car and killed him.
The inquiry had recommended that an institution be set up to monitor the trees on the road and ensure they do not pose a danger in order to avoid similar accidents. Dr Charles Grech had also recommended that this institution should continuously survey the trees in urban areas to take a decision on whether they pose danger to drivers.
