Maniac Goes For A Ride Down The Florida Turnpike On Truck Driver’s Hood

Videos by OutKick

How was your weekend? Was it anything like the ABF Freight driver who had a crazy man jump on his hood while driving down the Florida Turnpike Saturday afternoon? Imagine just trying to do your job on a Saturday while your buddies are crushing beers and slamming cheeseburger sliders next to the pool and the next thing you know a wild maniac is holding onto your hood and refusing to be thrown off no matter how much you swerve back and forth.

There is Florida content and then there’s this Florida content. Watch this video. I’m begging you.

According to the Palm Beach Post, cops were able to catch up to the semi and take the maniac into custody. :

The man was driving a Toyota SUV southbound on the turnpike around 1 p.m. when he began acting strangely and stopped the vehicle on the exit ramp to Boynton Beach, a male passenger in the Toyota told troopers.

The man got out of the Toyota, began walking on the highway and jumped the concrete median wall onto the northbound side, causing traffic to slow down. He then hopped onto the hood of the truck.

“He was banging on the windshield with his hands, and with his forehead,” said Florida Highway Patrol lieutenant Yanko Reyes. And then Tropical Storm Isaias came into town. What a weekend for the eastern side of Florida.

  1. This is hilarious but what’s mind-boggling was the truck driver who looks like he is actively trying to throw the guy off the speedy high way (which would likely cause his demise by being hit by the truck itself and then getting shredded under the truck into pieces). I understand the truck driver was probably just trying to go on with his day and was afraid that the mad man had a weapon, etc. but thankfully nobody was seriously hurt through this incident! Need to keep the mad man alive for more comedy LOL!
