A round of very intense weather that tore through Colorado destroyed the truck topper of a stormchaser that was in a tornado's path.

Vern Carlson describes himself as a stormchaser, and was near a tornado in Simla, Colorado when the storm took a toll on his vehicle.

It wasn't the wind that ripped it off of his truck. Rather, the intense weather blew a horse trailer into his truck, and caused it to roll over his truck. That's what destroyed the truck topper in the scary incident.

He was in the midst of numerous tornadoes and called it 'the scariest five minutes of my life.'
