Lorry driver drags auto for miles on motorway in California without realising

Lorry driver drags auto for miles on motorway in California without realising

Cell phone video caught a big rig truck dragging a auto down the highway Wednesday after the vehicle became lodged underneath. "They don't know what's going on here".

"Stop, he's not stopping", the driver of the Nissan shouted to Steimke while pointing to the driver.

Steimke pulls alongside the vehicle as the driver waves his hands trying to get the trucker's attention.

"I didn't know it", the truck driver responds, seemingly unaware that he had been in an accident and had been pulling a auto.

The driver of the truck claims to have no idea that a collision occurred. When the carrot truck attempted to pass the slower vehicle, it merged into another lane and hit the Nissan, KTLA reports.

In a video of the incident, you can hear the driver screaming for help, saying the truck driver won't stop.

What a drag: This was a hitch an American driver clearly didn't want. Steimke stops too and runs back down the freeway to check out the scene. The truck driver, heading north in the slow lane, is seemingly oblivious to what is happening.

"What do you mean you didn't even know it - he is on your truck".

The driver said he's lucky to be alive after he was dragged four miles up the 15-freeway.

CHP said the 62-year-old Bakersfield man who was driving the truck didn't show any signs of impairment nor were there any mechanical problems with the truck.
