A driver sustained injuries when he was caught off guard when the vehicle, he was traveling in was hit by a crosswind on Sunday this week.

The crosswind caused the vehicle to veer off the road and overturn some 13 km on the B2 route outside of Swakopmund towards Walvis Bay. A crosswind is any wind that has a perpendicular component to the line or direction of travel and affects the aerodynamics of many types of transport.
