(KGTV) - Several big rigs overturned Wednesday along Interstate 15 in San Bernardino County as strong winds whipped through Southern California.

Three trucks were pushed onto their sides by powerful gusts on both sides of the freeway.

Video from KABC showed a truck moving through lanes, only to have winds lift the back wheels off the ground.

Traffic backed up as Caltrans crews and California Highway Patrol officers worked to clear the scene.

There was no immediate report of any injuries.
