A creepy hooded figure is scaring the sh*t out of Australian drivers.

This footage of a creepy hooded man is ghost story-type stuff.

In the early hours of Sunday morning, a NSW man was driving home when a hooded figure stepped out onto the road.

The man stood stock-still with his head down and face hidden, positioned side-on to the car.

Then he snapped into action — lunging toward the car with what sounded like strangled roars.

The terrified driver sped away before trying to call his wife and her friend, who were travelling soon behind — but when he couldn’t reach her, the two women were subjected to a similarly frightening incident.

‘‘I almost stopped before I could go around this guy, and as we went past he just lunged at our door,’’ the woman told the Newcastle Herald.

‘‘We still don’t know what he was trying to do, whether he was trying to rob us, was he trying to take our car or was he trying to hurt us.”

Post continues after video:

The scary moment was recorded by the male driver’s dashboard camera on Lake Road near Kearsley, near Cessnock, the Newcastle Herald reports.

The newspaper reports police have since swept the area and charged a man with possession of the drug ice. He was charged at Cessnock Police Station and has been refused bail.

He will appear before Maitland Local Court on Monday June 1.
