Storm Chaser Home From Hospital

Posted: Updated:

AUSTIN, Texas_It was a long trip from the Oklahoma Hospital to his house in Texas, but storm chaser Austin Anderson was happy to be back.

He'll be wearing a neck brace for at least three months to protect the crushed vertebrae, broken ribs, and cracked sternum.

Anderson was driving a tornado chasing truck for the Weather Channel when the tornado hit El Reno on May 31st.

His truck was tossed 200 feet, and he says he remembers everything; flying through the air, hitting glass , and stopping with a mouth full of dirt.
