A semi truck is swept off the highway by mud

A semi truck is swept off the highway by mud[Eastern Sierras: 2010] Flash flooding caused by heavy rainfall turned into a sweeping mudslide riddled with boulders. The mudslide went down the mountain towards the highway.

The truck in the video tried to make it past the initial water, but became stuck in the mud.

In no time at all, the semi was pushed off the road by  the thick, and his truck overturned. The driver of the 18-wheeler wasn’t hurt. He had reached safe ground.

Eyewitnesses later said that the truck was smashed under the weight and volume of mud and “sounded like a soda can being crushed.”
