Default Re: Semi Trailer Flipped by El Reno EF5 Tornado - Full Version - 31st May 2013

This video leads to a lot of questions. Why would the guy with the go pro actually stop moving while in an active lane of traffic instead of pulling on to the shoulder. The truck skids to miss the car nearly jackknifing and still hits the car. I would say the wind might have helped but more likely the trucks load shifted and caused the truck to tip. Wonder if anyone was charged??? or injured?? Cops got there pretty fast though.
This video could be used as a what not to do if caught in a storm driving on a highway. Under passes are brutal for anyone travelling in the plains during a storm they are accident traps.
