Glynn and her husband, fellow actor Joe Foust, were enjoying a long ride in a forest preserve trail north of Chicago, Illinois, when they were caught in a sudden storm.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Foust said just as Glynn called out that the pair should take cover, he heard a loud crack and saw a tree fall in his bike's rearview mirror, which landed on his wife.

The National Weather Service reported winds of 70 mph or more in the area.
