Audrey Wood planned a typical day with some errands to run, but she ended up trapped by a tree.

Wood decided to get some gas for her car. She lives on Curd Road.

She never made it to the gas station after a tree fell on her car.

"This is where the tree hit me, right by this driveway," said Wood.

She said she heard what sounded like a pop.

"But then when I looked back up, that's when Boom! This tree just fell. It was like ‘Oh my God.' It fell on the top of my car, and glass flew everywhere," said Wood.

The limb that fell on Wood's car was so heavy it stopped her car in motion. Unable to get out of the car at that very moment, Wood's faith kicked into high gear.

"This is a wake-up call for me, that God blessed me and I know he has," said Wood.

With the car's engine still running, she quickly became claustrophobic.

"The first thing I thought about was trying to get out," said Wood. "I couldn't get out and started to panic. I called 911."

Before emergency help arrived, a man and a woman in a passing car managed to pry the door open to free her.

"I want to tell you, I don't know who you are, but thank you for helping me get out," said Wood.

Wood can only think of three words to describe how she came out of the accident without a scratch.

"Thank you, Jesus," she said.

When Mt. Juliet police officers arrived on the scene, they asked her if she ran into the tree.

She quickly corrected them saying the tree ran into me.

The tree appears to be on church property, but that still has to be sorted out.

Wood's 2001 Hyundai was totaled by the tree.
