A video that has gone viral shows a big rig truck dragging a car down the Cajon Pass on Interstate 15 -- with a man in the driver's seat.

In video captured by Brian Steimke, a Nissan Maxima somehow became stuck to the rear of the truck as it traveled down the freeway. Other drivers got in front of the truck to force it to stop, but the truck continued on for at least four miles.

Finally, the truck's driver realized what was happening and stopped.

The Maxima's driver was not injured, but the car was badly damaged.
