A trucker's battle against the Kansas wind is becoming an internet sensation.

A YouTube video of the truck nearly tipping over on a Kansas highway has had tens of thousands of hits.

The Kansas Highway Patrol said it happened April 28th on U.S. Highway 183 south of Hays. The truck was northbound when driver Guy Tapscott of Decatur, Alabama told troopers he caught a gust of wind. His truck went through a ditch and into a nearby field. Tapscott wasn't hurt and his truck suffered minor damage.

Wind gusts in the area topped 40 miles per hour on that day.
