HUTCHINSON, KS (KWCH/CNN) A Kansas man is telling the story of how he hit a fish while driving on the road. Yes, the road.

William Myers was driving on Hwy 281 when he saw a bird with something in its claws. The bird dropped the fish while taking off.

When he arrived home, he found a bass in the grill of his truck. Social media is calling it "a new take on grilled fish".

"When the bird took off, the wind was blowing and it hit the front of my pickup. I thought he was going to break the front of my windshield out and he went over the top finally," Myers says.

He believed the crisis was averted. When he got home, Myers says he went inside, not noticing anything out of the ordinary, not realizing the bird lost its meal.

"I went out to move the pickup about two hours later. I thought, 'what's that sticking out of the grill of the pickup?'" he says.

It was a 12-inch bass in a hole in his pickup.
