A mother who was trapped inside her car as a monster truck pushed her along a wet and busy highway has spoken out about the terrifying ordeal. 

Melbourne mum Kelly Bubeck, 41, was driving to work on the Western Ring Road on Friday when the truck hit her from behind. 

The truck driver appeared oblivious to what was happening and continued to push Ms Bubeck's car down the highway for 750m.

'All I'm thinking of is my daughter and my husband,' she told Nine News

'I'm thinking: ''I'm not dying today.

This isn't it''.'

The aged care worker feared her car was going to go under the truck as she desperately tried to grab her steering wheel to activate the voice control. 

She shouted out 'triple zero' but the voice control was unable to understand Ms Bubeck. 

Other motorists alerted the truck driver to what was happening and he finally stopped his vehicle.

'When I stopped the car and opened the door and got out, I'm yelling at him ''You nearly wiped me off'',' she said.

'He turned around and looked at me and ''oh, for f**k's sake!'' They're the only words he said.'

The truck driver wasn't charged and no further police action will be taking following the incident.

Luckily, Ms Bubeck did not suffer any injuries but is now struggling to claim her £18,000 for her car insurance. 

A GoFundMe page was launched to help the Ms Bubeck purchase a new car.
