NERANG, Australia, May 24 (UPI) -- A woman who rejected a fellow motorist's flirtatious advances recorded the man hurling golf balls at her car while traveling more than 60 mph.

The 25-year-old woman, who asked not to be named, turned her dashboard camera to the side Saturday while driving on the M1 in Nerang, Queensland.


The video shows a male driver in a blue car throwing golf balls at the woman's car as she films.

"Are you actually kidding me?" the woman can be heard yelling.

"This is what happens when you don't let men flirt with you," the woman says in a voiceover recorded after the incident. "They're golf balls."

The woman said the man had been waving, winking and blowing kisses at her while they traveled side by side on the road. She said he became angry when she ignored his advances.

The footage was posted to Facebook by Keith Cornwall, a friend of the woman's.

"If one of those balls had gone through and hit her -- anything could have happened... there could have been a multi-vehicle accident on the M1," Cornwell told 9NEWS.


Police said they have seen the video and are working to identify the driver.
