June 25 (UPI) -- A Florida man rode on the state's busiest highway while clinging onto the hood of a car.

In video of the incident recorded by Daniel Midah, who was driving next to the open-air passenger, the man is lying on the hood of the car, which was going around 70 mph. He holds on with one hand and talks on his cell phone with his other hand.

Midah told WPLG-TV that he believed the man was talking on the phone with the woman driving the car.

"He didn't even look like he was freaked out by what was going on, but I was freaking out," Midah said, adding: "All I was thinking is, this guy is going to slide off and hit me, slide off the other side or, if anything, he is going to slide down and she is going to hit him, and then she is going to crash into somebody else."

"When she says she's done with you but you're not really done with her #onlyinflorida," Midah tweeted along with his video.

Neither the man on the hood or the woman in the car have been identified.
