Truck Driver Narrowly Avoids Crashing In High Winds

Quick thinking (and maybe a bit of luck) helped a truck driver from Alabama prevent his big rig from crashing, and the amazing save was caught on video!

A motorist driving behind the big rig recorded the moment, as the truck driver was able to prevent the rig from overturning during high winds.

"He did the only thing you could do, which was a perfect reaction to turn in the wind," Jeff Steinberg, a driving instructor, told KCTV.  "There's no way to actually teach that."
