Tree smashes Myrtle Beach family’s car moments before they left house

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A Myrtle Beach family said they were moments away from getting in their car and heading to the store when a large tree fell on their car.

They told WMBF News they were putting on their shoes when all of a sudden, they heard a big boom.

The family realized that lightning struck just outside their front door and caused the tree to fall on their only means of transportation.

“Oh, we were all in tears… we’ve got five car seats that are now no good,” said Tavaris Mitchem and Maria Davis.

Thankfully, no one was hurt.

They’re now dealing with their insurance company to try and figure out how long it will take to get their car fixed.
