Tornado Demolishes Truck In Oklahoma

he twister spiraled on the ground and slammed into a semi truck, ripping it apart on Interstate 40 in Oklahoma.

Amazingly, the driver, Jeremiah Morrison, survived and only has minor injuries. He says he knew about the tornado warning and had pulled over on the side of the freeway, but was still in the truck.

"As it came toward me, I saw it out in the distance, so I pulled my truck over. I was getting ready to get in the ditch, because that's what I've always been taught to do," said Morrison. "I kinda started to get out, looked up, looked like the tornado kind of disappeared. So, I got back in the truck. Tried to get my seat belt buckled, and about that time, I felt the driver side of the truck come off the ground. I closed my eyes. Put my arms over my face and bounced around in the cab a little bit. Not real sure if I blacked out. I know that I was laying on the ground. Picked myself up, looked over. The truck was on its wheels. I ran around to see -- I guess kind of sort of assess the damage."
