Trucker Who Dragged Another Car Along For Miles: ‘I Didn’t Know It’

1780

Imagine driving along, minding your own business and then seeing this on the highway. A cell phone video, taken yesterday by a driver named Brian Steimke, shows a maroon Nissan Maxima being dragged along behind a truck. When Steimke pulled up alongside the car, he discovered the Nissan’s driver still in the driver’s seat, waving frantically for someone to stop the truck. Steimke’s video caption said that the two had been driving in this manner for four miles.  After the truck pulled over, Steimke could be seen approaching the truck driver, demanding why he kept driving when there was clearly a car stuck to his truck. “I didn’t know it,” was the truck driver’s response.

The incident occurred yesterday afternoon on the Cajon Pass in California, reports CBS Los Angeles. Thankfully, the driver, who wished to remain unidentified, escaped without injury. The truck driver was also unidentified. The California Highway Patrol said that the crash was “not considered a criminal incident.”
