As roadways across Texas were flooded by torrential rain on Monday, several residents became trapped in their homes. Weather forecasters urged drivers to remain off the roads, though some motorists got caught in harm’s way.
However, the floodwaters were no match for this monster truck with six-feet tires and a nearly 10-foot lift kit.
