Social media video showed cars doing doughnuts in the intersection with a large crowd gathered to watch. Other video shows a large police response along with ambulances.
“Officers arrived on scene and found traffic congested due to the inability for traffic to move caused by exhibitions of stunt driving in the area,” San Francisco police said in an e-mail.
