“A man is being evaluated at a hospital after bizarre behavior on the Florida turnpike Saturday afternoon, according to News 6 sister station WPLG.
Florida Highway Patrol received a call from the passenger in a Toyota SUV at 1 p.m. Saturday who said that the man he was driving with “began acting strange.” The passenger said the driver then stopped on the southbound ramp of Exit 86 to Boynton Beach, got out of the car, and began walking on the highway, according to FHP.
He then climbed over the median wall from the southbound to the northbound side, slowing traffic. He then jumped on top of a moving semi tractor-trailer and began beating on the windshield with his hands.”

Fortunately, the conclusion of this strange incident resulted in no injuries. The truck driver was eventually pulled over by police who detained the hood jumper and brought him to a hospital for evaluation. Some social media users indicated that the man on the hood was beating the windshield with a flat bar. Watching the video, that might help explain why the driver did not pull over suddenly to confront this person.
