Moneta, VA - A severe thunderstorm sent a large tree across Route 122 Monday evening around 5:45, crushing a vehicle underneath and delaying all traffic for nearly two hours.

Bedford County dispatch said there were no injuries from the fallen tree, but the pictures show the situation could have been much worse.

A Tornado Watch was in effect Wednesday for the area as strong storms rolled through.

April Tucker sent us pictures from the scene.

The tree and vehicle have been cleared, and both north and southbound lanes of traffic are back open on 122.
