Man Caught On Video Hanging Onto Back Of Car On Highway

View Comments

CHARLOTTE (CBS Charlotte) – Police are still baffled by a video showing a man clinging to the back of a moving car on I-77.

Witnesses say the white sedan was going about 55 mph on the Interstate. One person told WSOC-TV the man broke the back window with some sort of object. “Whenever he lifted his hand to smash the glass open it looked like it was something sharp,” Samuel Cruz old the station.

He and his mother, Brenda Cruz, were in a car driving near the sedan “All of a sudden the kids say, ‘There’s someone on top of the car on the trunk,’ and I’m like, ‘What?’” Brenda said. “I said, ‘Let me get my phone and start recording.’”

The recording has gone viral, and police say they are trying to track down the people in the sedan.

Cruz says they called 911 and gave license plate information to the police.

Police tell WSOC-TV they think the incident was domestic in nature and that the driver and the man on the back of the car know each other, but until they find the people involved they can’t be sure.

There have been no reports from hospitals of injuries that may be connected to the incident. Police say it’s unlikely that there would be any criminal charges after the investigation.
