VIDEO: Wind blows container off of a big rig — and onto South Carolina cop’s car

Published:

The City of Charleston Police Department (CPD) shared wild video captured on Wando Bridge during high winds last weekend.

The incident occurred in Charleston, South Carolina, on March 12, 2022.

Police said:

While assisting a disabled vehicle on the Wando Bridge this past Saturday, an officer was inside his cruiser when the car was crushed by a container that was blown from its truck by the high winds. The container subsequently fell from the bridge and into the Wando River.

CPD is incredibly thankful that the officer and truck driver were both uninjured in the incident. We’d like to thank @mountpleasantpolice for their officer’s quick response in ensuring everyone was alright, and for providing the harrowing video which was captured on the officer’s in-car camera.
