Wind Topples Trucks in Utah


On Saturday, strong winds toppled several trucks on Interstate 80 in Tooele County, Utah.

The tipped trucks blocked the interstate and brought traffic to a halt.

In total, six trucks were blown over in Tooele County alone. There no reported injuries.

According to ABC 4 in Utah, wind speeds reached 76-miles-per-hour.

“It causes those trailers to weave and ultimately, once the trailers start to weave, the wind gets underneath them and just pushes them right over,” Trooper Clint Fawson told ABC 4.
