CHADRON, NE — A Nebraska State Trooper used his Twitter account to show what can happen when a driver tows a lightweight trailer in high winds near the South Dakota border Wednesday.
High winds and a lightweight trailer resulted in this unlikely predicament on HWY 385 near the South Dakota border. The trailer was balancing solely on the pickup bed. Chadron based Troopers worked the accident and provided traffic control. pic.twitter.com/tNISsufd59

Luckily, no injuries were reported beyond the damage to the pickup bed, but it did serve to illustrate the power of nature on the windswept prairie.
