Winds were so strong on interstate 80 this week that four eighteen-wheelers were knocked over when driving on a wind-blasted stretch of highway. 

Part of i-80 was closed in both directions between Tooele, Utah, and the Utah-Nevada state line due to high winds on Tuesday night, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.

Troopers said that a total of four semi-trucks were blown over by winds and one driver was injured, KSL News reports. 

The portion of i-80 reopened at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, officials with the Utah Highway Patrol said
