DODGE COUNTY -- A local truck driver had quite a scare Wednesday when the semi truck driving in front of him in Dodge County caught a strong gust of wind and fell over.

The driver for Chambers Trucking, LLC caught the whole incident on camera. Extremely strong winds were an issue all day in southeast Wisconsin, with wind gusts nearing 60 miles per hour at times.

"I gotta go, bye," you can hear the driver say on his radio as the semi fell. 

Thankfully, it seems like the semi's driver will make a full recovery.

"Got the driver out. He's a little bumped up but ok," a post reads on Chambers Trucking's Facebook page.
