This is not the way you want to wake up in the morning -- especially when you have a job interview.

Kevin Woodson was sleeping soundly when he heard a knock on the door of his Rancho San Diego home on Sweetwater Springs Blvd.

“Do you own an F-150?” a sheriff’s deputy asked.

“I said yeah, came up here… my car was crushed, ” Woodson said.

He said he was shocked to see his truck almost sliced in two by a 100 foot tree and this was not a good morning for something like this to happen.

“I was in the process of getting a job, it was my second interview today, so I was going back at 10 a.m.,” he said. “Thank God I do have a ride there but my truck is just totaled.”

Woodson has been out of work for three months and was interviewing for a customer service position. He said he’s going to take his mom’s car to the interview and show them the pictures of his crushed truck, so hopefully they will cut him some slack.

He said he only got the truck in November and though he’s upset that it’s totaled, he’s glad nobody else was in or around it.

“A lot of tenants walk their pets. So I’m glad nobody was hurt, it could have been worse,” he said.

Property officials said they were looking in to what may have caused the tree to fall.
