A Florida resident had to cling on for dear life on the hood of his car after his ex-girlfriend drove off on the highway with him on the hood. After other motorists saw the crazy ordeal and recorded it on video, the two went viral.


Junior Francis shares a Mercedes Benz with his ex-girlfriend Patresha Isidore, who also happens to be the mother of his child. According to reports, Francis needed to use their shared car at the same time as his ex, who was about to pick up their child from school.

However, he insisted on needing the car so he clung on to the hood to stop her from leaving. It turns out, there was nothing he could do to stop Patresha from leaving, and she began to move the car with him still clinging on to the hood.

"She turned the engine on, dropped it in reverse and turned. That's when things took a turn."

A fellow driver on the highway, Daniel Midah, was so shocked by what he saw, that he felt the need to record the scene while he was driving right beside them. He recalled that the couple was even speaking through their cellphones at that moment.


“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.”

Scared for his life, Francis was able to call 911 dispatchers, explaining the crazy situation to them by saying: "She's swerving the car and I'm on top of the car. I really need help."


Finally, the terrible incident stopped at West Key Park, where Francis managed to get a hold of the keys. Although he didn't press charges against his ex-girlfriend, she was arrested by Lauderhill police and charged with "crimes against a person exposing them to harm". However, she was later released from jail given that he did not want to file a case against her.
