Terrifying moment US driver narrowly escapes drug cartel blockade ...


A driver has narrowly escaped an SUV blockade set up by a Mexican cartel on the US border.

The footage shows the motorist arriving at an intersection in Nuevo Laredo, in the Mexican border state of Tamaulipas, only to find it blocked with SUVs.

Hooded men, believed to be members of the Cartel Del Noreste, stand around the car and knock on the windows, forcing the driver to quickly reverse.

The driver and passenger can be heard speaking in English as they try to engineer an escape from the highly dangerous situation.

After they reverse, an SUV chases them before another drives in front of them to block them in.

Meanwhile members of the cartel who are on foot try to chase down the worried US citizens.

But the driver expertly maneuvers around the SUV in its way, mounting the sidewalk as it drives around the cartel to safety.
