A driver captured and shared stunning footage of numerous semi trucks blown over by high winds along I-29 near Council Bluffs, Iowa.
On Monday, June 11, winds gusting at speeds of up to 80 m.p.h. overturned nine semi trucks on I-29. Most of the drivers suffered only minor injuries, but the Omaha World Herald reports that two of the truck drivers were injured severely enough to be transported to the hospital.
A viral video that captured much of the aftermath of the incident was shared by Facebook user Lynn Jacobs on Monday, June 11.
Jacobs writes, “This was taken in I-29 south of Council Bluffs, Ia around the Thurman exit on 6-11-18 ok for all of you that think you know how this video was shot, here is the shocker it was filmed from the back seat passenger. So please save all your safety bashing for someone else.”
