The wind in Wyoming could be classified as a hurricane in some states and this trucker got to see how fast things can change while driving in the cowboy state.

This Wyoming Highway Patrol dash cam video shows a trucker on a remote stretch of a wind whipped highway lose control of the rig with some help from mother nature.

Fortunately the truck driver's quick thinking to throw the truck into a jackknife saves the rig from flipping over.

Just a reminder that when there are road closures, warnings and/or light trailer advisories posted on Wyoming roads, they are there for good reason and should not be ignored.

Thanks to the Wyoming Highway Patrol, Sheriff Departments and local law enforcement for keeping our highways, city streets and desolate stretches of county roads safe for all who travel them.
