When Trees Fight Back - What Would You Say To Your Insurance Agent?

How would you explain this to your insurance agent?

Felled Tree on Truck Hood

I came across this scene while passing the intersection of 28th Avenue & Friendly in south Eugene, Oregon and couldn't resist taking a photograph.  Was the tree fighting back in a last attempt for survival?  Did the person with the chainsaw fell the tree in the wrong direction?

Curious about what really happened?  A local news story explains how this tree fell across the truck.
