Los Angeles police searching for “reverse” driver
The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is in search of a reckless driver who veered through one of the city's busiest roads for miles in reverse.
The reckless driver started on Mulholland Drive, and then drove his car backward for more than two miles along Laurel Canyon Boulevard toward Sunset Boulevard. Luckily no one was hurt.
The vehicle was moving backward at unsafe speed and crossed double-yellow lines at around 4:45 p.m. last Thursday. Given several close calls, a police officer said it was incredible that no one was hurt.
Speaking about the potentially dangerous incident, LAPD Sgt. Tito Mariano said, "Reckless driving, unsafe speed, crossing double-yellow lines, failure to drive on the right half of the roadway. Imagine if it was you or your family member driving and being struck by someone doing something irresponsible."
A stunned witness captured a video of the reckless, backward driving car using his cellphone, and said the driver was going backwards on oncoming traffic. The car, identified as an Audi, appeared to almost hit a pedestrian at a point while moving backward.
The cellphone video showed that there were two people in the Audi - a man behind the wheel and a woman in the passenger seat. Police said the car had dealer plates, and detectives are trying to contact the dealership to apprehend the driver.
