A shocking video has gone viral of a motorcyclist slamming into a vehicle on I-5 in Tumwater, WA, then hanging on to the car’s trunk for dear life.
When the Acura abruptly hit the brakes, the motorcyclist was unable to stop in time and slammed into the vehicle.
He reportedly held on to the back of her trunk for about a quarter-mile and repeatedly pounded on the window to get the driver to pull over. The wreckage of his Suzuki 600 motorcycle was left on the side of the freeway.
Washington State Patrol claim the driver of the Acura was intoxicated and had been driving erratically. The motorcyclist told State Trooper Brooke Bova that he cut across several lanes of traffic to catch up to the Acura and record the license plate number with a GoPro camera he had been wearing.
The motorcyclist did not sustain any major injuries, but did experience complain of knee pain, said Bova.
After the Acura stopped on the shoulder of the highway, the motorcyclist and driver were seen having a heated argument.
Washington State Patrol arrested the driver of the Acura for DUI, but determined the crash was the motorcyclist’s fault.
Bill’s Recovery and Towing posted a video to Facebook that captured the accident scene that took place around 2 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 16. The video has been shared over 3,400 times as of Saturday afternoon.
