|An oblivious or cruel truck driver dragged a Nissan|
he had collided with up to four miles along
a California freeway.
A big rig truck driver who dragged a car he had collided with up to four miles along a California freeway says he didn't know the car was stuck to his truck.
The viral video of all this is at the bottom of the post.
The first part of the incident I can accept. Accidents happen. The truck and/or the Nissan changed lanes, and there was a collision.
The Nissan got hung up on the truck and was dragged along Interstate 15 in Cajon Pass. Other drivers honked their horns and tried to get the attention of the truck driver. The person behind the wheel of the Nissan waved his arms out the window yelling for help.
I get it the truck is much bigger than the Nissan, but the truck driver couldn't figure out his rig seemed to be handling a little weirdly?
Eventually, a vehicle pulled out in front of the tractor trailer and forced it to stop. Luckily, the driver of the tractor trailer didn't try to run that person over, too.
When the truck driver was told there was a car stuck to him he said, "I didn't know it." Again. Riiight.
Not sure why the truck driver didn't stop, though, until forced to.
So far, no criminal charges have been filed, which is also odd. Truck driver must know the local cops or something. KTLA said California Highway Patrol told them the 62-year-old truck driver showed no signs of impairment and there were no mechanical issues with the truck.
He was allowed to leave after the incident was investigated. The driver of the Nissan wasn't seriously hurt.
