Tractor trailer tossed like a toy by extreme winds in Texas


In this incredible footage, a truck driver loses the battle against high winds on a Texas roadway in dramatic fashion.

The video was captured on Wednesday, March 13, in Amarillo, Texas, by storm chaser Blake Brown, according to Fox News. Brown says that the wind was being funneled between two grain elevators, which concentrated it enough to topple trucks.

In the video, you can see the wind lift the rear wheels of the trailer, pushing it to the ground and bringing the truck along with it. The tractor trailer violently sides along the roadway before coming to a stop.

The condition of the truck driver in the toppled truck is not immediately clear.

About 40 semi trucks were reportedly blown over in Amarillo on Wednesday.
