Ford Mustang crashes into crowd leaving Lambo dealership appointment
A car crash filmed at an auto encounter in Florida could have been much worse, but it looks like bystanders got lucky. Video from the scene captured a black current-generation Ford Mustang leaving a Florida car meet, and you probably know where it’s at. The driver lost control and violently crashed into the crowd lined up along the road.
The video shows the Ford pony car exiting the Lamborghini dealerships where the meeting was held. The driver slams on the accelerator, revving the engine. The fishtail rear, the driver pointing the car towards the crowd as they lose control. The car hops the curb, picking up countless people on its hood before coming to a stop in the dealership grass. People roll off the hood and onto the ground where others are sprawled, diving out of the way to avoid being hit by the out-of-control car.
No injuries were reported, although the WFLA says someone at the scene posted a photo on social media of his ankle in a walking boot. Police told the publication they were unaware anyone was transported for medical attention after the incident, although that may change. The WFLA also reports that police issued two citations in the crash. However, they are still investigating the crash, so police may file additional charges later.
The dealership had asked attendees not to demonstrate at the event, but at least one driver didn’t listen. The video captured a fairly orderly departure of the cars, although the Mustang goes to the Mustang, doesn’t it? Things could have been much worse, but hopefully it’s a valuable lesson for the driver not to get too cocky and show off. No one will want you for your car, but they will want your car. Don’t show yourself.
