Dramatic video shows the moment a police vehicle plows through crowd watching street race

A police vehicle in Tacoma, Washington state plowed through a crowd on Saturday (January 23) after responding to street racers in the city.

Video obtained by Reuters showed the police vehicle flashing lights after it rammed a crowd of approximately 20 to 30 people that surrounded the car.

“People were messing with the cops, yelling at the cops, shouting at the cops, and then the car reversed and drove full speed into the crowd,” Cory Le, who filmed the video, told Reuters.

Tacoma police told local media that they were notified of street racers and a crowd of approximately 100 people blocking streets in downtown Tacoma before 7pm local time (0300 GMT), and that the officer driving the vehicle was afraid that the crowd would “break his glass” after they started pounding on the car’s windows.

Authorities said that one person was injured in the incident.
