It's an eighteen wheeler, but not many of those wheels were on the road during this video.

This is incredible footage from Alabama. A semi-truck driver managed somehow to keep his truck upright during high winds. A driver traveling behind the eighteen wheeler caught the whole thing in video footage from his phone.

In a perfect world, trucks aren't driving during these conditions, but Mother Nature pulls a fast one from time to time. Other truckers who have watched the video say that this driver reacted perfectly by steering his truck and trailer in to the wind.

Semis, especially empty ones, tip very easily, and roll overs are the number one cause of fatalities for commercial drivers.

How the driver managed to keep his truck upright is beyond me. Watch the video below.
