DETROIT – In a video captured by a resident’s surveillance camera, three cars can be seen speeding through a Detroit neighborhood and crashing into parked cars, causing significant damage to the area.

Just after 4:21 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 21, three cars appeared to be drag racing on East Outer Drive near Chalmers Street on Detroit’s east side. The three vehicles were captured on video speeding down the street, spinning out and crashing into vehicles parked along the road in front of homes.

Each of the three cars involved reportedly crashed, waking up residents, of which are primarily seniors in this particular area, according to neighbors. Several vehicles were damaged, some of them totaled, in the crashes.
