If you watch tv news at all, you probably saw this video yesterday. A red Texas pickup was caught by a tornado, spun around on its side, then set back on its wheels. And after that little amusement park ride, the driver simply drove away.
What you might have missed, however, is the local follow-up about the truck and driver:
Dang, people. I grew up in Oklahoma. It’s practically the tornado capital of the world. And I never heard of anything like this happening. But I have always heard that everything’s bigger in Texas. Tougher, too, apparently. Waaay tougher.
Update, March 25: A Fort Worth Chevrolet dealer announced today that Chevrolet is giving the teen driver a new pickup, a Cherry Red Silverado 1500 All Star edition, which has a starting price of around $50,000.
