Storm flips woman's truck as she's driving.

A Texas mother found herself where no one wants to be when a tornado touched down Wednesday.

Amber Leon was driving along I-20 near Forney with her three-year-old when high winds suddenly flipped her car.

Autumn Lewis watched in horror as the twister touched down.

"As soon as I looked to my right there was one tornado that came across the highway and flipped a red SUV," she said.

It was Leon's vehicle.

"I looked to my right and I could see the tornado coming up over there," Leon recalled. "All I could think about was 'Please don't wreck'."

In an instant the storm turned her vehicle, and her world upside down.

A Good Samaritan rescued Lewis and her son and drove them to safety.
