Authorities are blaming drag racers and stunt drivers for a chain reaction series of car crashes on the Palmetto Parkway Tuesday Morning.
Video footage shows vehicles racing and doing donuts on the Palmetto, blocking the road and distracting other drivers. Local10.com quotes Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Joe Sanchez as saying “People don’t realize that through these actions, they could kill somebody, or hurt somebody.” “They’re slowing down the traffic, in what’s called a rolling roadblock,” he added.
In this case, the chaos caused by the drivers resulted in crashes involving at least 10 vehicles. Some of the collisions appeared relatively serious, leaving debris in the roadway.
Though the crashes did result in some injuries, they were reportedly relatively minor.
