A video from northern Colorado which shows the arduous fight of a truck driver with the wind has gone viral. Sudden gusts pulled the vehicle off the road. In the end, the driver failed to control the vehicle, which swivelled and slipped into the lane separating the two sides of the road.

As the author of the video argues on Twitter, trucks have had to deal with strong gusts on Interstate 25 for a long time, the wind jerks semi-trailers and pulls them aside.
Eventually one of the vehicles turned off the route and, according to media reports, blocked the traffic for some time.
