In the middle of a storm, trucks are among the vehicles most at risk.
The short video below was captured on a driver’s dash cam on a highway in Nebraska a few days ago. It rains heavily in the region at this time and strong gusts of wind are felt.
In front, a semi-trailer is struggling. And after a few seconds, his trailer starts to rock. To the point of tipping over on the edge and turning over the entire load, causing an accident right under the eyes of the motorist with the camera.
A question of catching the wind
When the side wind is too strong, the large surface area of the trailer is sufficient to lay the trucks down. A few days ago, another storm in Turkey caused the same kind of disaster on a highway in the country. In short, don’t follow the trucks too closely when the wind really starts to blow. It seems more careful …
Wind storms with gusts up to 60-90 mph hit Nebraska on Wednesday, leading to the toppling of at least one 18-wheeler on a local highway. Thankfully, the driver was unharmed. pic.twitter.com/hFqlOqx5gY
