CAUGHT ON VIDEO: Hurricane Sally Topples Big Rigs Along I-10 Bayway Bridge

Mobile, AL – Hurricane Sally wreaked havoc on a large stretch of the U.S. Gulf Coast when it made landfall early Wednesday morning.

The category 2 storm made landfall near Gulf Shores, AL at 4:45 a.m. CDT and battered southeastern Alabama and the western portion of the Florida Panhandle with maximum sustained winds recorded at 105 mph.




 

Sally has since weakened to a tropical storm, but not before she released her fury on multiple tractor-trailers, especially along the Interstate 10 Bayway bridge in Mobile.

Video shot by storm chaser Wayne Kinkennon captured the moment one rig was toppled by the high winds.

WATCH it below.



Thankfully, Kinkennon reported the driver only suffered minor injuries.

 

As Transportation Nation Network reported early Wednesday morning, a second big rig was met with the same fate.

The rig is seen hanging precariously close to the edge after being blown over.

The condition of the driver is still not yet known.

Kinkennon also captured video from a Pilot Flying J which sustained significant damage.




 

Also on Wednesday, Pilot Flying J announced temporary closures of its Theodore and Satsuma, AL locations.

As of late Wednesday afternoon, both locations remain closed.

TNN will continue to follow new developments.
