Surprisingly, the motorist escaped serious injury. The van drove through the middle lane seconds before the truck overturned.

A driver who videotaped the accident, which occurred when an 84-mph blast hit a motorway, said conditions were “horrible.”

“I stopped in front of the truck and ran out to check if the guy was okay,” he said.

“Two other guys came running and helped me get on the truck and pull it out.”

The hero said that the victim was “shaken” but was otherwise unharmed.

“He was fine,” he said.

“He had a few cuts on his face, he was shocked, but everything is fine.

It happens like:

“The weather conditions were terrible in terms of wind.

“My reaction was in a sense empty.

“It was just a shock to see what was happening.”

Two trucks were also blown up on the M4 between Portcaul and Margam in Wales when a 90 mph wind gust blew shortly before 11 am.

Unfortunately, three Britons and an Irishman are known to have died in the storm today.
