A dashboard camera captured an out-of-control driver swerving across a highway for miles in what became a terrifying drive for many on the New Jersey highway.

Motorist John Barrett was heading home from work on the Jersey Shore on June 29 when he spotted a vehicle barreling down the highway at an estimated 100 mph. The driver sideswiped a white SUV, hitting a young Manasquan woman heading home, according to officials.
