Dozens of luxury cars impounded after reported stunt driving on Hwy. 400

Last Updated Apr 3, 2017 at 5:00 am EDT

Ontario provincial police say reports from the public led them to charge at least a dozen people with stunt driving on Sunday afternoon.

Witnesses say a group of luxury vehicles were driving “erratically” on Highway 400 and weaving in and out of traffic at extremely high speeds.

OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said the charged drivers all had their vehicles impounded and licenses suspended for a week. Other drivers were let go with a warning.

Among the seized high-end vehicles were a Lamborghini, a Ferrari and an Aston Martin.

OPP caught up to the accused drivers by reducing Hwy. 400 to one lane near the Barrie ONroute service station, which brought traffic to a crawl. Officers then stopped the vehicles one by one.

Breakfast Television’s Kevin Frankish was on the scene. He watched as several vehicles were impounded, and broadcast the event live on Periscope.
