A Hawaii man is on the search for the owner of a surfboard that fell off of a highway overpass Sunday, landing directly in the car he was driving.

“Can you please claim your board and, I don’t know, pay for the windshield or something?  Because you almost killed me,” the driver, Jerrin Ching, 19, told local TV station KHON.

Ching, who lives in Moanalua, said he was driving his girlfriend’s 2011 Honda Fit on Sunday morning when, out of nowhere, a red surfboard, 8 to 10 feet long and made of Styrofoam flew towards the car and pierced its front windshield, coming within just inches of Ching’s face.

“I was in the far left lane and there was a bus in the middle lane, and all of a sudden I see this red thing come out of nowhere and turns out it was a surfboard,” Ching, who could not be reached Wednesday by ABC News, told KHON.  “And it just crashed through my windshield.”

Witnesses told police the surfboard flew off a nearby overpass and bounced off the bus in the middle lane of traffic before landing on Ching’s girlfriend’s car.

No one has come forward so far to claim the lost surfboard.

Anyone with information about the surfboard or its owner is asked to contact the Honolulu Police Department.
