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

It doesn't take very long for new drivers to grow accustomed to sharing the road with semi-trucks.

A nearby driver, Brian Steimke, shot a video of the incident. Steimke is heard saying.

Other drivers honked to try and get the big rig driver's attention.

During the confrontation, the truck driver said he did not know another auto was attached to his vehicle.
