The California Highway Patrol is investigating a bizarre incident in which a group of sideshow drivers in souped-up cars appear to have blocked traffic on a freeway by doing donuts and other elaborate stunts.

The drivers briefly shut down all northbound lanes of I-880 near the Oakland Coliseum on Saturday, according to SFGate. The show reportedly broke up after it was announced police were on their way.


CBS San Francisco reports that the video was posted to Facebook on Saturday but has since been taken down. However, different versions of the footage have popped up on YouTube.

CHP spokeswoman Diana McDermott told the Mercury News that the highway patrol is still trying to gather information and contact witnesses. She said the process likely will take some time.

SFist described the drivers as "damn fools," and many commenters on YouTube seemed to agree.
