Watch This: Truck Driver (Somehow) Avoids Rollover

Quick thinking and a lot of luck helped a tractor-trailer truck driver stay upright during a Kansas wind storm.

A driving instructor who watched the video, shot by facebook user Jake Stokes, said luck played a large role in keeping the truck upright in such a severe cross wind, according to Eyewitness News 12 in Kansas City.

Instructor Richard Noeller said the field helped the driver keep his trailer upright.

Noeller says local conditions helped a lot, the western kansas sand grabbing the truck's tires and increasing the turn radius of the tractor into a jack knifed position.

"And as that tractor pivots around the centrifugal force is going to toss the trailer back," said Noeller.
