High winds knock over semi truck

Posted:

PEOSTA (KWWL) -- A storm that passed through the tri-states area Sunday evening produced enough wind to knock over a semi truck.

Officials on the scene said the truck driver had pulled to the side of westbound Highway 20 because the heavy rain was obstructing his visibility.

From his stopped position, the wind knocked over the semi truck, which was carrying no cargo at the time.

Officials say when they arrived on the scene a little before 6 p.m., the driver was walking around with no mention of injuries.

Wenzel Towing arrived on the scene to tow the semi to the company's shop in Dubuque.
