A motorist captured heart-stopping video of a semi truck being bullied by strong winds on a Bay Area bridge.
The video was captured on Sunday, October 24, on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge in Richmond, California as winds gusting at speeds of more than 50 miles per hour ripped through the area.
In the video clip, the truck’s trailer is lifted by the wind and pushed into vehicles other lanes. Take a look below.

A second truck also fell victim to the powerful winds on the bridge.
Bay Area folks, don’t get on the Richmond Bridge right now. We just watched this truck roll over from the wind. This happened while we were stuck in traffic from an RV rolling over pic.twitter.com/U78XUAtwZB
