Watch: Powerful wind gusts topple semi-truck in Wisconsin

Crews had to clear overturned semis

 

At least 13 semi-trucks toppled over amid high winds on a rural road in Wisconsin on Wednesday.

Sean Chambers, a driver for Chambers Trucking LLS, witnessed the powerful wind gusts and posted a Facebook video on the wreck on Country Road A in Dodge County.

"I just couldn't believe it. It was unreal to me," Chambers said, according to FOX6 News. "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 said the trailer in the tipped truck was empty. He said he helped the driver get tipped truck out of the rig.

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.

A high wind warning was issued for all of southeastern Wisconsin on Wednesday.

Gusts reportedly reached 50-70 mph in some areas, according to the National Weather Service.
