Tree lands on a car after severe thunderstorm in Bensalem Monday.
In Bensalem, two cars took a different kind of beating when a huge tree snapped in the storm, crashing onto a white Nissan and a blue Honda.
“When we were going up Bristol Road, we both saw the white car and went, “Oh!’” said Judy Worthington. Her parents live a street over from where the tree fell on the 3200 block of Bristol Road in Bensalem. After the storm roared through, she left for her daily dinner with her parents.

Worthington says the damage she found when she drove over was incredible.
“You can see that the inside of the tree is completely rotted out so that was just a matter of time,” Worthington added.
