A driver was caught on video recently in a hair-raising battle with a prairie wind. And this time the driver won.

KWCH Television in Kansas City has a video clip on its website of the of the truclk just as it was caught in the wind. If anything had been different, and the driver, Guy Tapscott of Alabama, a little less than expert, the load would have wound up scattered all over the field.

"In my opinion that was 70 percent divine intervention and 30 percent skill," said Richard Noeller who runs and teaches at the Kansas Truck Driving School.

KWCH TV had Noeller, a former driver with roll-over experience, critique Tapscott's actions and said it was an amazing bit of driving.
