I was just getting ready to shut down for the day when a news alert popped up on my screen about a Porsche getting hit by a falling tree on Bay Highlands Drive on the Annapolis Neck Peninsula in Maryland. At first, I thought it would just be a quick blurb and maybe a shot of some unfortunate person's Porsche getting hit in their driveway.
Unfortunately, from the looks of things, the Porsche 993 took a pretty hard hit right on the driver's side windshield resulting in serious head trauma to the driver (identified only as a 45 year old man). The driver was flown to a local trauma center indicating the potential seriousness of his injuries. Witnesses said the man was pulling away from a stop sign when the branch hit the car on the quiet street. The street is flanked by large, old trees.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family for a speedy and full recovery.
