BACONTON, GA (WALB) -

A Baconton family is thankful no one was hurt when a big tree smashed their vehicles.

Lightning struck a large tree on Martin Luther King Drive causing it to smash into the back of a Taurus and a Honda.

The owners worked quickly to get the tree off one of the cars because a dog was trapped underneath.

"That's my baby,” said Jemikia Lawrence, Car Owner. “My car is my baby. At the end, all I say is that it's going to be a blessing for God what I get at the end."

" I was playing a game and I was kind of scared and I jumped up and cut off the game and ran to the back room,” said Jim Lawrence.

The dog is okay. Family members and Public Works crews worked to clean up the debris.
