Man Rides On Back Of Car On US Highway

A man has been caught on camera as he clung to the back of a car on a busy highway in North Carolina.

The man, who has not been identified, then reportedly smashed the rear window of the white car with a sharp object.

The scene was shot by Brenda Cruz, who was travelling on the highway off Charlotte with her family.

"All of a sudden the kids say, 'There's someone on top of the car on the trunk,' and I'm like, 'What?'" Ms Cruz told local station WSOC-TV.

"I said, 'Let me get my phone and start recording.'"

Her son, 17-year-old Samuel, said: "It was really weird. I thought it was a dummy at first."

The Cruz family said the man eventually smashed his way inside the car, which was reported to be travelling at 55mph (88kph).

Drivers reported the case to police but by the time they arrived at the scene, the white car was gone.

Police are looking for the man, reports said.
