CORONA, Calif -- It only lasted a few seconds, but now the California Highway Patrol wants to speak to a person who risked his life and put others in danger when he was performing a dangerous stunt clinging to the side of a pickup truck.

Jennifer Driscoll Frerichs shared her video online with city leaders, reports CBS Los Angeles.

“One little slip and he could’ve hurt himself and other people,” Frerichs said.

On Saturday, she saw a man climb out of the passenger-side window of a pickup and dance while hanging on with one arm as a sweater around his waist flapped in the wind on the 15 Freeway in Corona.

“My only thought I got when I posted that to the City of Corona is possibly the mom or someone who knew them would see and be like: ‘Are you kidding me? Like, really?’” Frerichs said.

Other people spoke up online saying they’d seen this type of activity on the freeways recently.

“If he fell off of there, someone would swerve to avoid him and crash into someone else. He could have hurt a lot of people, more than just himself,” a man said when shown the video. “It’s gotta be illegal. It’s just incredibly stupid.”

A CHP spokesperson called this stunt “unbelievably dangerous.”
