Winds in Utah bowl over big rigs

| Tuesday, May 17, 2005

“I’ll huff, and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your rig down.”

Several truckers in Utah must have thought a very big, bad wolf was in town on Monday, May 16, as winds gusting more than 80 mph blew over six rigs on the state’s highways.

Four trucks on Interstate 15 and two on I-80 were knocked over by the gusts. No injuries were reported, but the highways were shut down for several hours.
