KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Strong winds brought down trees throughout East Tennessee Tuesday night.

One driver says he is lucky he was not hurt when a tree landed right on the hood of his pick-up truck.

Mark Campbell told 6 News he was heading home from work Tuesday night on Northshore Drive when the weather quickly changed.

"The wind was blowing very hard. It came down here. A couple of trees were blowing around, and I could feel it pushing the truck around the road. And then that's when I looked up and it whipped it really hard and brought it down. And that's where it ended up," Campbell said.

Campbell said his truck is pretty dinged up, but he was not hurt.
