SCOTCH PLAINS -

A massive tree fell on top of a Scotch Plains man's car during Friday's nor'easter.

The tree also knocked over the chimney on Bruce Ford's home and left hole in the side of the house.

"I was downstairs watching TV in the TV room and the next thing we heard was a deafening crash," Ford says. "It shook the house like crazy and we didn't know what it was."

The tree is estimated to weigh 40 tons.
