A man is under arrest after a bizarre series of events early Friday morning in Mississauga, Ontario.
It started with a crash around 3:00 a.m. involving a single-vehicle along Highway 403. Ontario Provincial Police said a car lost control and rolled over on the westbound express lanes.
Other drivers pulled over to help — but that’s when things apparently took a turn.

Police said the male driver in the rolled over vehicle apparently started to attack the Good Samaritans, and even allegedly tried to steal their vehicles.
“It’s mind boggling,” one motorist said. “You’re on a highway in a dangerous situation and then somebody attacks you? I’d be shocked — I don’t know how I’d go on with my day after that. That’s bizarre, to say the least.”
