CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46) – It’s the video making the rounds on the internet, a man holding onto the hood of a car while it speeds down Interstate 77 in Charlotte.
A witness who didn’t want to go on camera says the incident started as a fight at the Circle K on North Graham.
The man refusing to move out of the way and then video of him hanging on for life as this vehicle speeds down I-77.
“I see a cluster of cars, I tried to go around them but there were a lot of cars, after I got next to them, I seen a guy on the hood of a car,” added the person who recorded the video.
The witness who recorded the video didn’t want to give his name, didn’t call 911, but he did post it on his Instagram profile.
“I was on my way to work, and I figured someone else would have because there was a lot of people.”
Those watching the video had a different reaction. “That’s wild. He’s on the front of the car going how fast?” asked Larone Rhone from Charlotte.
Not only was Rhone shocked, but he was also concerned as well.
“That man has to be terrified.”
CMPD says they didn’t get a call about the man hanging on the hood of the car. They also hope this riding on the hood of the car is not a trend as it has been seen in other parts of the country.
And people hope this is not a trend here in Charlotte.
“Charlotte is becoming something,” said Rhone. “Charlotte is in a state of transformation right now. So, we’re still coming up with a story for Charlotte, but that is not what we want Charlotte to be known for.”
