Watch a big rig battle high winds on a notorious bridge — and win


Check out how close a truck driver comes to being blown over by high winds in this stomach-churning video clip.

The video was captured Thursday, December 13, on the Burlington Skyway Bridge, which connects Hamilton to Burllngton, Ontario.

The footage was shared by Facebook user Mick Rambo, who simply wrote:

“Burlington skyway earlier today
Watch the trailer”

High winds that threaten to overturn semi trucks are common on the Burlington Skyway Bridge due to lack of any windbreak over the vast Lake Ontario and due to the 118 foot height of the bridge structure. Trucks with empty trailers are often asked to seek alternate routes because of the risk of overturning.

Take a look at the video clip below.
