Video of the Wildwood Crash H2OI goes viral on Twitter
Several disturbing images posted on YouTube on Saturday night show cars racing through a red light and crashing at the intersection of the Rio Grande and Park avenues. A vehicle in the far right lane gets clipped by another automobile in the left lane, causing the driver to lose control and swerve into a golf-cart-like car on the other side of the road.
Please be aware that there is explicit language in some of these movies. Although witnesses filmed gruesome footage of the collisions, it was decided not to put it here.
One daytime clip shows a blue automobile doing burnouts through a stop sign junction while a police SUV gives pursuit. In other clips, cars can be seen doing donuts in the middle of the night, filling the air with smoke.
In another video shot outside the Quebec Hotel on Atlantic Avenue, you can see a lot of cars and motorcycles cruising down the main road at night, revving their engines.
But later in the video, you can see several cars doing donuts in the middle of the intersection. While a large crowd gathers on the corners to watch, yell, and record on their phones. As SUVs spin out, the group slowly makes its way out into the street.
At the end of the upper video, it looks like the crowd has taken over the street as cars speed by, crossing the center lane into oncoming traffic and just missing the people in the street before the police arrive and drive through the crowd.
Earlier in the day, smaller groups of people sat quietly on the sidewalks while painted and modified cars drove around, sometimes revving their engines.
