The heatwave gripping parts of north America has caused misery for millions, sparking devastating storms and wildfires.
However, one less publicised side-effect is on the region's highways - although one driver in Wisconsin will be feeling the effects after their car was sent flying metres through the air by heat-buckling in the road.
Amateur video caught the moment the black truck hit the broken asphalt on highway 29 in Chippewa County on Sunday.
The driver lost control of the vehicle and swerved into oncoming traffic, but the occupants of the car walked away with minor injuries.
The road has since been repaired.
Officials say concrete in the road is liable to contract in the winter and expand in the summer heat, causing the surface to buckle.
