“The highway's blocked and I saw the car doing [doughnuts] and I started recording,” Suarez said. “It looked fun from my view from the top of the bridge, but it's dangerous down there you know.”

Witnesses told the news station the event was a meetup of car enthusiasts who gather to show off their vehicles. The interstate appeared to be backed up for miles.
