The branch was about three feet long and three inches in diameter and struck Baker-Jarvis in the chest. The man is credited with saving his wife’s life by being able to pull the car over and bringing it to a stop before losing consciousness.
Both were taken to a nearby hospital where she was uninjured, but the husband died from his wound.
