Wind catches semi approaching Wyoming Highway Patrol auto

11 February, 2017, 08:21 | Author: Mae Harvey

Gusts up to 90 miles per hour were recorded around the time the truck toppled Tuesday while headed down Interstate 80 in southern Wyoming.

On Tuesday, near Elk Mountain on Interstate 80, three Wyoming State Troopers were on scene providing care for motorists who were involved in wrecks. Thankfully, all Troopers were out of their patrol cars assisting others and were not injured. The semi-trailer's two occupants also escaped without injury.

The Highway Patrol posted the video to warn people to "heed high wind advisories and closures", according to the video's caption.

The video, taken from a dash-cam, shows a semi truck being blown over by powerful winds and tipping directly on top of a WHP vehicle. "Hopefully this video illustrates why", Wyoming Highway Patrol's Facebook post said. The trailer falls onto a parked patrol auto.

The video has been viewed 709,000 times and has 27,800 shares.
