A family from Charlotte, North Carolina, noticed a car driving down Interstate 77 with a man on the outside on Saturday afternoon. Brenda Cruz and her 17-year-old son, Samuel Cruz, still can't believe what they saw. "All of a sudden the kids say, 'There's someone on top of the car on the trunk,’ and I'm like what?" Brenda said.
"I said, “’Let me get my phone and started recording.'"
Brenda said other drivers on the road were slowing down, too, watching anxiously to see what would happen to the man on the back of the fast-moving sedan.
"It was really weird, I thought it was a dummy at first," said Samuel Cruz.
Authorities received several calls but troopers said by the time they arrived the car was gone and right now, they don't have much to go on to investigate the case.
The Cruz family said they saw the man on the back of the car break the back windshield and climb inside.
"Whenever he lifted his hand to smash the glass open it looked like it was something sharp," Samuel Cruz added.
The family say a woman was driving the car with a child in a car seat inside.
"I'm really worried because I just hope she's OK you know, with her kid," Samuel Cruz said.
Authorities think the driver and person on the back of the car know each other, but they can't be sure until they track down who they are.
Police officers say they are trying to figure out what happened. They say it is too early in the investigation to know what, if any charges the people involved could face but said the driver is ultimately responsible.
