BRENTWOOD, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- The City of Brentwood has agreed to pay for repairs on a woman's car after it was damaged by a tree. 

Bonnie Cox said she had called the city three times over the last several months because the tree was leaning, but never got a response.

The tree fell on top of her car on a rainy day with thunderstorms.

Her insurance wouldn't cover the costs and she asked the city to cover the costs. 

The city has finally agreed to do so after News 4 shared her story last week.

"Your story helped tremendously. It got the ball rolling and I appreciate it very much," Cox said. "If it weren't for you I don't think it would have went this far. I don't think it would have happened, that's why I'm very grateful for you"
