Despite a host of RV drivers who suffered the consequences of trying to drive their rigs in the high winds of Colorado, a semi-truck driver apparently decided he was just too tough to stop.
Yahoo News reports eyewitness Jake Stokes said, “They (truck drivers) had severe wind storm warnings. The highway got shut down shortly after several trailers and fifth-wheel campers were blown over.”
The 20-second video shows the big rig nearly tipping over on the pavement, then making a very quick exit from the highway by blasting through a barb-wire fence and regaining his stability in the soil on the other side.
