The affordable education loan option
Honolulu - A man was driving along a Honolulu freeway over the weekend when a surfboard crashed through the windscreen just centimetres from his face, leaving him with only scratches on his face and arms.
Jerrin Ching was driving on the H-1 freeway on Sunday morning when the red surfboard came out of nowhere and pierced through the glass, he told KHON-TV.
“I'm just thankful to be here,” he said. “After it hit, I was like, ‘what just happened?’”
Witnesses told police the surfboard fell off an overpass and bounced off a school bus.
Ching said he was on his way to pick up a friend at the University of Hawaii, when “all of a sudden I see this red thing come out of nowhere and turns out it was a surfboard”.
“And it just crashed through my windshield.”
It's not known who the board belongs to, or where it came from. “Can you please claim your board, and I don't know, pay for the windshield or something?” Ching said. “Because you almost killed me.”
Ching called it a “freak accident”. - Sapa-AP
