Man clings to hood of car moving 70 mph down highway

Top Stories

Evening rush hour drivers encountered a rare, and dangerous situation in Massachusetts Friday when a car drove past them with a man holding on for dear life.

Video shows an SUV drove past with a man on the hood.

The two drove for a significant distance one holding on, and the other yelling at him to get off his car.

The driver following them works for the NBC affiliate and managed to stay with the pair and shoot the video.

Police say 65-year-old Richard Kamrowski of Framingham jumped onto a white Inifiniti SUV after a sideswipe led to a verbal altercation.

Nbcnews.com reports Fitzgerald apparently had enough of the two men’s confrontation at some point after their collision and attempted to drive away, but Kamrowski then jumped onto his hood and held on while Fitzgerald drove for “a very significant distance,” police said.

The driver, 37-year-old Mark Fitzgerald of Lynn, had been involved in the sideswipe, and police say he drove off.

Authorities say good samaritans intervened including a man who pulled a gun on Fitzgerald before officers arrived.

In the end Fitzgerald was arrested and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, negligent operation and leaving the scene of a crash causing property damage.

Nbcnews.com reports though Fitzgerald pushed his small SUV up to speeds as high as 70 mph during the incident, no one was injured. 

Kamrowski was also arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
