A new carol about a flying Christmas tree, anyone?
There he was, just driving down the road, mindining his own business when....
Boy, won't he always have a story to tell every Christmas.
NORTH HAMPTON — A perfect storm of high winds against a disposed Christmas tree, launched the tree into the front grill of a passing Ford, say police.
On Dec. 30, police were called to the area of 122 Post Road at 12:48 p.m., for a report of a "single car accident involving a Christmas tree," according to the town's public police log.
When officers arrived, the driver of a 1998 Escort said he was motoring along the road when a Christmas tree that was left on a curb for recycling, became airborne and "blew into the grill of the car," said the police department's administrative assistant, Jessica Miehle.
"The Christmas tree flew out and attacked him," joked Miehle, who did not know the extent of damage to the Ford.
