Officer clings onto hood of runaway car for dear life

LIUPANSHUI, China (NBC/CCTV VIA APTN) — Surveillance footage captured dramatic video of a reckless driver in Southwest China trying to escape from a traffic police officer.

The footage shows the driver being stopped and questioned by the officer, but the driver tried to speed off to escape going to jail.

He traveled more than half a mile — with the officer hanging onto the hood of his car.

The officer miraculously escaped the incident without getting hurt.

The driver was arrested on Friday on charges of dangerous and reckless driving.

Police say said the driver was stopped after being caught for making an illegal U-turn.
