THIS is the shocking moment a falling tree missed a car by inches after bumbling workmen brought it toppling onto the road.
Stunned residents in Crewe, Cheshire, looked on as two tree surgeons cutting down the huge tree made it fall the wrong way, nearly flattening a passing car.
Traffic ground to a sudden halt as the clueless workers fled, with fuming motorists accosting them.
The 70ft tree fell only metres from a local house which it had previously overlooked.
In a video posted to TikTok, one local can be heard saying: "F***ing hell, it's going the wrong way!"
After the tree fell inches away from the passing car, brushing its boot, the resident added: "How have they got away with that?"
