Video shows driver clinging to cab as semi sinks into floodwaters

Published:

Alarming video out of Texas shows a driver clinging to the cab of his truck as the vehicle is overwhelmed by rising floodwaters.

The video was captured by TikTok user Athina Economon on May 2, 2024, on I-69 in Shepherd, Texas, amid severe flooding.

In the video, you can see a truck driver in a reflective safety vest standing on the hood of his semi as rushing floodwaters cause the truck to jackknife. Several vehicles pass the truck as floodwaters push the truck towards a wooded area.

Houston news outlet Fox 26 reports that the driver of the truck in the video is okay. 

Take a look at the video below.
