Truck driver narrowly escapes billboard crash


NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (NBC) — A security camera at a southern California business captured video of a driver’s narrow escape during a heavy wind storm. A pickup truck had just pulled out of a parking space Saturday when seconds later a billboard came crashing down at that exact spot. Two other cars were crushed, but no one was hurt.

Wind gusts reaching nearly 70 mph knocked down trees, poles and power lines all over the Los Angeles area Saturday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
