The tires were blown out of the Maxima and the helpless driver is seen waving his hands, begging for help as Steimke got closer.

Steimke told Inside Edition: "He was trying to wave people down and everyone was trying to get the semi to stop."

It went on for a half excruciating mile until finally, the truck driver came to a stop.
