An Uber passenger reached over and grabbed the steering wheel with both hands and told the driver "we're going to crash" in the middle of a highway in Sacramento.

The intense dashcam footage shows the driver driving when suddenly his customer reached for the wheel from the passenger seat. 

The Uber driver, named Dax Castro can be seen using his one arm to keep the customer away while trying to control the car with his other arm.
