Dashcam Video of Fake Roadblock is Terrifying

A dashcam video shot in New Jersey is straight out of a terrifying nightmare.

While driving on Interstate 78 in New Jersey, driver Ivan Tukhtin said in his YouTube summary that he grew immediately suspicious:

no lights or hazards. both lanes blocked off. Suspicious for sure, scary to think what could have happened.

Not sure what is going on wether it be an attempt to carjack, a robbery, a dumb prank, someone who innocently broke down and needed help (but in a creepy kind of way) – but whatever it was is scary as hell. Luckily the driver fled to safety and alerted police.

So, what exactly is going on here? Anyone care to explain? All comments and theories welcome.
