Speeding car seen in viral video causing chain-reaction crash
“A citizen saw it on social media, recognized the vehicle, alerted us to where the vehicle was located (Friday morning) in the city of San Bernardino and we recovered the vehicle,” said Sgt. Joe Corney with the CHP. “However, the driver fled.”
The Infiniti seen striking the BMW on Wednesday afternoon had been reported stolen, Corney said. Authorities are searching for the hit-and-run driver.
“We’re working leads to arrest him,” he said, but would not provide a name of the suspect.
The driver of the Infiniti can be seen on the now-viral video speeding along the freeway and trying to squeeze between the tractor trailer and the BMW. He strikes the dark BMW, which then swerved under the tractor trailer. The BMW then hit a green Mazda.
Both the Infiniti and the Mazda that was struck by BMW fled the scene, according to CHP news release.
