Monday was a very stormy day in Texas, as numerous tornadoes swept through the state causing major damage and one fatality in Oklahoma.

There was a lot of damage done in various areas, and we asked listeners to upload pictures of what they saw.

We saw pics of beautiful clouds with sun and rainbows, but also lots of aftermath and debris. We'll show you those in a minute.

You may also remember there was a video of a truck caught in a tornado.

Now there's more information on the condition of the truck and the driver.

You saw from the video that the impact of the storm flipped the red pickup truck over multiple times, but the driver survived and the truck miraculously ended up back on four wheels.

According to KXANRuben Briones, who helped the driver of the red pickup truck, said the driver was from Manor, Texas, but left the truck in nearby Elgin and said the driver told him “it was scary.”

What Happened To The Truck?

According to KXAN, the windows are blown out, the side panels are dented and scraped, and the rearview mirrors are gone. That's intense, but when you watch the video, it's clear things could have been much worse.

Where is The Driver?

Reportedly, police are attempting to track down the driver who they say is in his late teens or early 20s.

Aaron Crim, a commander with the Elgin Police Department, says the driver escaped "with a scrape and some cuts on his left arm, and said that an off-duty EMT "wrapped the driver's arm in a bandage"

He also said “I asked if he (the driver) was okay, and he shook his head and didn’t really answer me now I understand why he had a blind stare. I’m sure he was scared to death."

It's a relief that the driver survived and was able to drive away in one piece. Let's hope he's doing ok out there, wherever he is.

Just the other day I was driving past Clem Mikeska's in Temple for lunch and a memory popped in my head about Wes's Burger Shack More, and the former business that used to have delicious pizza.

I remember going there for lunch just a few years ago and taking my entire hour to take advantage of that pizza buffet! The different variety of pizza stuck out to me. I even remember the game area!
