No dupe spotted.

CAJON PASS (CBSLA.com) — A driver says he’s lucky to be alive after his car became wedged under a truck and was dragged four miles up the Cajon Pass.

Cellphone video captured the unbelievable sight of a maroon Nissan Maxima clearly stuck under a truck hauling 50,000 pounds of carrots that continued driving up the remote canyon pass Wednesday at about 3:21 p.m. The driver in the sedan can be seen waving his hands for help behind a shattered windshield and crushed hood.

A California Highway Patrol statement said the truck was driving 30 mph northbound on Interstate 5, north of State Route 138, in the truck lane when it began to move into the left lane. The Maxima, while trying to pass into the left lane also, collided with the truck and became lodged, according to the CHP.

Witnesses said they thought the car had been dragged for miles, but CHP officials said the Maxima had been dragged for “approximately .7 of a mile.”

Brian Steimke posted the Facebook video, in which you can hear him saying in disbelief, “Look at that. Oh my God.”

Other drivers honked to get the truck driver’s attention, and one finally got in front to stop the truck.

This must be a common problem in Commiefornia based on how many times it is posted

Yeah, but a lot of times people post threads with very cryptic titles, and there should be at least one obvious and relevant keyword in titles to make the searching process easier.

It would cut down on this problem greatly.

Missed the thread yesterday, but cannot believe the guy who drove up beside the hooked car...that back tire was on a rim at best, and anything could have come flying off that car, not to mention the car itself could have rapidly become unstuck at any moment and become a monster projectile set loose upon a bunch of other vehicles all doing highway speeds--no thanks! Although all the other cars were probably just trying to get around the inevitable clog that was gonna happen whether the truck eventually stopped or the hooked car came off and caused a thirty-car pileup...people just wanted to get home before the 15 became the usual (more frequent than not) parking lot!

And I like how some guy is saying something like "he wants it (presumably the camera) turned off" as the guy filming walks back to the hooked car...I'm betting that driver was one of those uninsured and possibly illegal drivers that would have done an instant runner if his vehicle was in any shape to drive away. Most people would actually want that kind of footage for their insurance. Or bragging rights. Or something!
