NORTH MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Drivers on Interstate 95 were greeted with an odd sight after a car was seen flying down the highway with a man on the hood.
Twitter user @danimidah shared the video after he saw the car heading southbound near Ives Dairy Road on Sunday around 8 p.m.
The unidentified man could be seen clutching onto the hood of the black car, which was going around 70 miles per hour.
Nineteen-year-old Daniel Midah said he’s the man who shot the viral video.
Speaking to 7News, Midah said he was driving down I-95 when he turned his head and noticed the bizarre situation.
“I was like no one is going to believe me if I tell anyone,” he said, “so I took out my phone and just started recording.”
Midah said he was scared the entire time as he kept the camera rolling.
“It’s really insane, it’s surreal,” he said.
Midah said a woman was behind the wheel as the man gripped the car with one hand and held a cellphone with the other.
Midah called 911 after recording the viral video, fearing the driver could swerve and hit his car or the man could fall off into the street.
“It was kind of dangerous, not just for them, but for everybody around,” said Midah.
Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the incident, but said they discourage anybody from taking video while driving.
According to FHP, the man on the hood of the car and the driver could be cited.
It is unknown if this was a lovers’ quarrel gone wrong.
“I don’t know if the guy was there willingly, if the guy was there on accident, if he just hopped on and she drove off,” said Midah.
Since sharing his tweet, Midah’s post was shared more than 14,000 times, garnering over 600,000 views.
