A automobile accident caught on camera at a Florida car show could have been far worse, but witnesses appear to have been lucky. A black current-generation Ford Mustang was seen on video leaving an auto meet in Florida, and you probably know where this is headed. The vehicle lost control and slammed into the crowd that had gathered beside the route.
The Ford pony vehicle is seen moving away from the Lamborghini stores where the meet was conducted in this footage. The driver slams on the brakes and revs the engine. As they lose control, the back end fishtails, with the driver pointing the car at the audience. The automobile leaps over the curb, collecting an unknown number of people onto its hood before coming to a halt in the grass of the dealership. People fall from the hood and onto the ground, where others are spread out, attempting to avoid being hit by the out-of-control car.

There have been no reported injuries, though WFLA says that one person from the scene posted a photo on social media of their ankle in a walking boot. Police told the publication that they were unaware of anyone being transported for medical attention after the incident, though that may change. WFLA is also reporting that police issued two citations in the accident. However, they are still investigating the crash, so police could file additional charges later.
The dealership had asked attendees not to showboat at the event, but at least one driver didn’t listen. The video was capturing a fairly orderly departure of cars, though the Mustang is going to Mustang, right? Things could have been so much worse, but we hope this is a valuable lesson for the driver not to get too cocky and show off. No one will desire you for your car, but they will desire your car. Don’t showboat.
