People trapped as trees fall around their car

Updated: 


A group of people in a car had a lucky escape after trees began crashing down around them.

Dashcam footage shows the vehicle travelling along a narrow country road.

It passes already fallen trees on the wet road, but continues despite the obvious danger.

Further along the road it is forced to a halt as more begin falling ahead.
The driver frantically reverses away from the danger, but they continue to crash down, with some even landing on the roof. Screams from the passengers can be heard as the car comes to a stop, surrounded by the still falling trees.

According to the dashcam footage's timestamp, it happened in 2012, but the footage was only shared online this week.

The clip has since gone viral, amassing more than 650,000 views.

It is unclear what caused so many trees to fall at once or whether anyone was injured.
