Wild weather hits Texas again, this time in the form of a severe tornado outbreak. High winds, torrential rain, hail and tornadoes hit people from San Antonio to Dallas and northwards Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning. A motorist near Elgin, Texas (an Austin suburb), faced one of those zigzags and survived the ordeal – and then some.

The ordeal was captured by storm watcher Brian Emfinger, who was filming the tornado as it crossed a highway near Elgin. The vans Looks like a later GMT800 model (Silverado 2005-2006 we’re guessing), but despite its massive cockpit layout, the storm threw it around as if it were insignificant more than debris flying around around the hopper. Fortunately for the driver, it eventually landed on the right and was still running, allowing exit.
By thread on twitter, Chevy led by a teenager walking away with only bumps and scratches – and possibly a new respect for the power of nature and the wonders of modern(ish) automotive engineering.
