Man clings to car bonnet of ex-wife's male friend for 13 miles after divorce row

Dramatic video has emerged of a man clinging to a car hood for dear life as it barrelled down a motorway for 13 miles.

The 26-year-old man, who is known by the surname Li, and ex-wife Ms He, 24, were heading to a police station to settle the financial debt over their divorce dispute in Chongqing, China, on Sunday.

But the ex-wife got out his car before reaching the station and called for her male acquaintance, 54-year-old Mr Fan, to pick her up.

Enraged Mr Li tried to stop her from leaving and drove on to G85 Chengdu–Chongqing highway in pursuit of the pair.

Footage captured by a passenger from a passing car shows Mr Li holding onto a white car windshield while the driver tries to shake him off and speeds through a busy highway.

A woman is heard talking to a man, saying: “Look at this! This is too dangerous.”

The man replies: “He [The driver] hits the man and starts speeding off.”

A clip taken from inside Mr Fan’s car shows him driving erratically in rainy weather as he overtakes two big lorries on the road.

According to a police statement, the incident happened after the two cars slightly bumped into each other and that Mr Li jumped on to Mr Fan’s car hood in bid to force Ms He to get out of the car.

Ms He told her friend to drive off and he went on for 20 kilometres (12.5 miles) until a police car intercepted them.

A spokesperson for the Highway Transport Police said Mr Li, Ms He and Mr Fan were found to be unharmed and they were arrested on suspicion of criminal damage.

The police did not comment on Ms He’s relationship with Mr Fan and are investigating into matter.
