Video shows powerful gust topple tractor-trailer on Wisconsin highway
DODGE COUNTY (WITI) -- At least 13 semis toppled amid high wind on Wednesday, March 8th. A High Wind Warning was issued for ALL of southeastern Wisconsin until 5:00 p.m.
Sean Chambers, a driver for Chambers Trucking LLC, was witness to the powerful wind gusts on Wednesday.
Chambers posted on Facebook video of a wreck that happened on County Road A in Dodge County around 12:45 p.m. on Wednesday. He said the trailer in the tipped truck was empty.
"I just couldn't believe it. It was unreal to me," Chambers said. "His back end of the trailer kept coming up off the ground and he was trying to compensate for it, and then after the last hill we went past he just tipped over."
Chambers told FOX6 News he helped get the driver of the tipped truck out of the rig. That driver was OK -- just a little bumped up.
Chambers said the incident made him more cautions as he continued on his way to Nebraska.
"Only thing you can do is slow down. The faster you go, the harder it is to keep control," Chambers said.
