    A storm chaser was on hand to film when a semi truck succumbed to high winds in Alberta this week.

    The video was captured on Highway 2 in Southern Alberta on Tuesday by The Weather Network’s Kyle Brittain.

    Brittain says that the truck driver was shaken up by the blowover but suffered no serious injuries.

    Saw one that was blown over early this morning on I-90 westbound near Box Elder, SD. The winds are supposed to keep howling into at least mid day Friday.

    I hope they bought him a new seat after that, cuz a new pair of britches probably ain't enough.

    But in all seriousness, big respect to that driver for keeping it up right, and I'm glad that driver was unhurt.
