Woman Captures Reckless Driver on Video, Nearly Crashes into McDonald’s Restaurant
SPRING HILL – It’s that time of the year again.
Around this time every year, visitors from the north flock to various locations around Florida to escape the ice, snow, and frigid temperatures. These part-time residents are commonly referred to as “Snowbirds” to most Floridians, and Hernando County seems to be a “hot spot” for these cold weather refugees. But it’s not just the dual-state dwellers who fill the roadways with unfamiliar faces, many of them are local residents who just have a hard time following the rules of the road.
Chassisity Miller captured video of one wayward driver last night, after she says an elderly woman nearly ran another motorist off the road, before pulling into a McDonald’s Restaurant on Mariner Blvd.
Miller says she followed the reckless driver from Lamson Ave, eastbound on Northcliffe Blvd, where she then proceeded to turn north on Mariner Blvd. Miller’s video shows the driver cross the dividing line between the outside and inside lanes and then pull into the McDonald’s. That’s when the driver drove straight over a concrete curb before pulling into the drive-through.
After the driver left McDonald’s, Miller followed her back to a residence on Cranston Street, where Miller met with Sheriff’s Deputies. After viewing Miller’s video, they made contact with the driver.
Miller says the woman appeared to be in her seventies and stumbled as he exited the vehicle. “They were talking to her in the garage for a little bit and looking at the vehicle… She was still home we walked by and heard yelling coming from inside,” says Miller.
Law Enforcement Officers are unable to make an arrest or ticket reckless drivers unless they observe the incident themselves, according to Deputies we spoke to.
It is not known at this time if the woman was cited for the incident.
Millers says, “I am just thankful no one got hurt…..this time at least.”
