Authorities in Durham investigating 'reckless' car meet

DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- Video has surfaced of a large gathering of people at a car meet that goes off course.

A driver plows into the crowd.

One person yells in the video after seeing the driver lose control.

The gathering appears to be outside of an area business.

Before the crash, people in the video are watching the driver do doughnuts around spectators.

Then the driver seems to lose control and barrels toward a group of people.

What is not clear is when or where this happened or whether anyone was injured.

ABC11 received the video from an anonymous tipster and so did law enforcement in Durham after it initially surfaced online.

State law considers this type of meet-up illegal because the driver appears reckless. Authorities want to track down the person who drove into this crowd.

The minimum charge for reckless driving is a misdemeanor.

Both Durham Police and Sheriff's Office deputies are looking into who was driving out of control. If you have information, please call Durham Police or the Durham County Sheriff's Office.
