In another incident, a video shared on Twitter by Rob Beezy shows a truck driver struggling to keep his truck upright and eventually being tipped over. The dashcam footage from a car behind the truck shows the truck swaying from side to side with its rear wheels lifting off the ground! Imagine the horror for the driver?! The driver momentarily regained control and looked like he would win the battle, but the gale force wind returned and this time the whole truck overturned. 

According to reports, the driver was not injured during the accident.
