The driver was reportedly attempting to do a burnout when he lost control of the Camaro and began careening towards the crowd of people as the event was wrapping up. Video shows the Camaro strike the parked Ford Flex as the crowd flees from the oncoming car.
“You have a lot of spectators out here and when the muscle cars come through, they encourage them to do a burnout – spin the tires and cause some smoke,” Cruisin’ US12 organizer John Goci, said. “The car people, they feed off the audience and that’s a very risky and dangerous thing.”
Normally, it’s the Mustang drivers doing the crashing, but this Camaro driver seems to have come down with Mustang syndrome. Though, it’s often a similar case: a driver attempts to show off, and in doing so, loses control. It’s a reminder to keep it safe on public streets, and the driver should be thankful no one was injured. However, the driver was arrested for reckless driving.
