LEBANON, Tenn. (WTVF) — A large tree fell on a mobile home north of Lebanon, splitting it in half on Saturday morning during severe weather.

Two women lived inside the mobile home, but fortunately no one was inside at the time and everyone was OK.

When police and firefighters arrived to the mobile home park in the 3900 block of Coles Ferry Pike, they had to walk on the tree to get inside the mobile home.

A neighbor says he saw it all happen and was the one who called police.

"I was standing in my kitchen, in front of my kitchen window. I could see clear out to the other trailer," said Billy Warrick. "And so, I heard this big noise. All of the sudden I saw the limb fell and crushed into the trailer. Split it in two."
