A really big tree branch fell on a guy in Brentwood Park this afternoon. Although there aren't a whole lot of details about what happened, it seems safe to say that he's going to be making a full recovery.

The branch—possibly belonging to a eucalyptus tree—fell on one car, one truck and for a while, it was blocking two lanes of Sunset Boulevard, Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Fire Department told City News Service.

The fallen branch was reported just before 3:30 pm this afternoon around 12900 W. Sunset Blvd. The man's injuries were so minor that he didn't even go to the hospital. We haven't seen any pictures from the scene, so it's hard to say what shape the truck and car were in.

UPDATE 5:25 pm: Ask and you shall receive. This picture just got tweeted out by a CBS correspondent live at the scene:
