Four men miraculously escape after tree falls on car

In a battle between a falling tree and a car, there's only ever going to be one winner — but four men can consider themselves extremely lucky to have survived to tell the tale.

Shocking footage has shown the moment in the south of India, when a huge tree begins to collapse onto the road below.

One car was fortunate enough to be travelling fast enough to avoid tragedy, but an oncoming vehicle wasn't quite so lucky — falling victim to the tree.

The tree lands on the rear, causing a massive amount of visible damage and the vehicle to swerve to the other side of the road.

Incredibly, all four men inside the car escaped with nothing more than minor injuries. They were travelling home after visiting a dargah — a Muslim place of worship — when the incident occurred.

Police rushed to the scene before taking the occupants to a local hospital, with all discharged following first aid treatment.

Local residents say the tree was becoming loose at the roots due to age, eventually collapsing under its own weight.
