MANASQUAN, N.J. (NBC) — A dashboard camera captured a driver swerving across a highway for miles in what became a terrifying drive for so many on the New Jersey highway.
The Good Samaritan with the dashcam, John Barrett, spotted the vehicle barreling down the highway at an estimated 100 mph last Friday near the Jersey Shore.
The out-of-control driver sideswiped a white SUV, nearly spun out into oncoming traffic and even plowed through a roadside highway sign.
Barrett stayed on the driver’s tail until police were able to get things under control. The erratic driver is facing criminal charges for heroin, a syringe found in his vehicle and multiple traffic violations.
“Hopefully this video will show folks that it’s better to maybe just take an Uber or maybe not drive at all,” Barrett said.
