The skilled trucker just about manages to keep the 18-wheeler upright after it lurches more than 45 degrees over to the right.

Trucking experts say it was ‘70 per cent luck and 30 per cent skill’ which prevented the 18-wheeler from overturning.

A motorist behind the truck captured the incredible footage showing the driver turn into the wind before crashing through a roadside fence.

‘He did the only thing you could do, which was a perfect reaction to turn in the wind. There’s no way to actually teach that.’
