SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) – Elisha Holt was driving home in Scott County this afternoon when she found herself in the path of a falling tree.

Holt was on Cane Run Road near Old Farm Road when she saw the tree start to come down. She couldn’t avoid it. 

The tree crashed on to the roof of her vehicle and Holt managed to climb out of the vehicle as the roof began to buckle.

"I could see it blowing over and then, when I heard it start to crack, I realized it was probably going to come down and anyway, it started crushing the top of my car and I jumped out," Holt told LEX 18.
