VIDEO: Trucker helps rescue fellow driver after his big rig is blown over


A truck driver trapped in a vehicle overturned by high winds is rescued by another driver in this viral video.

The video was captured near Jasper, Tennessee, and shared by TikTok user areasalvin on August 4. Since then, it has been viewed more than 7 million times.

In the video, you can see two trucks blown over on the shoulder of the roadway. In one of the trucks, a driver is trapped inside the overturned cab by his seatbelt. A second truck driver cuts away the seatbelt and with help from other Good Samaritans, the trapped driver is pulled to safety.

The trapped driver’s daughter said that he went to the hospital to get checked out but suffered only minor cuts and bruises.

Check out the video below.
