BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Garden District is known for its beautiful oak trees. Unfortunately, they can present an occasional challenge.

A moving truck was destroyed Monday afternoon after it hit a low-hanging tree limb. It happened near the corner of Drehr and Wisteria at roughly 1:15 p.m.

The giant branch was knocked down and landed in the street. The mover was able to get the tree branch out of the road.

Thankfully, no one was hurt.
