THE driver of this car walked away uninjured after it was hit by a massive tree during Monday’s storms.

Blanefield man Colin Cresswell was driving along Craigton Road, Milngavie, when the tree crashed down on his Audi A4.

After his dice with death, Colin (71) said: “Had I been in the passenger seat I would have probably been killed.

“I was very lucky to survive, everyone was telling me to buy a lottery ticket!”

One driver was killed when a falling tree smashed onto his car in Balloch as Scotland was hit by winds of up to 114mph on Monday.
