FLORIDA, CBS NEWS - A wild getaway was captured on cellphone video in Florida.

Edwin Rivera recorded video of the incident on 12/18/17 while driving on John Young Parkway in Orlando.

Deputies said Derrick Maestas, 20, attacked a woman on a Lynx bus because she was talking too loudly on her phone.

Maestas got off the bus and jumped onto the back of a tractor-trailer that began traveling at a fast rate of speed on JYP, deputies said.

"I thought about getting behind the truck to get a better view, but then again, I thought real quick and I said, 'What if this man falls? What if he jumps?' I didn't know the state of mind, so I decided just to stay in the right lane and get an idea of what was happening," Rivera  said.

Deputies said Maestas was arrested and taken to jail, where he was issued a $500 bond.

It's not known how far Maestas traveled on the truck.
