Residents of Moreno Valley were treated to some fancy tricks put on display by a Honda Accord with no driver this week.
Video, posted to Facebook, shows the car doing doughnuts, with the hood up, while residents and cops look on:
On Frederick just north of Eucalyptus in Moreno Valley a few hours ago. When I arrived on scene the owner the car was on the roof of the car holding on and attempting to jump inside the car to stop it. Before I left the police were asking supervision to lay down a spike strip to deflate the tires to slow the vehicle down to gain control of it. Hope nobody got hurt.

“I’ve lived out here a long time and I’ve seen a lot but I’ve never seen anything like this before,” Tommy Anderson, a Moreno Valley resident who captured the video, told CBS News.
Anderson said that right before he puled his camera out to record, a man was on top of the vehicle trying to stop it. Not sure how that man thought being on top of the vehicle was going to do that.
“To turn the corner and see a guy just hanging on belly first on the roof and spinning around, I didn’t know what to think. It was unreal,” he told the TV station.
Police shut down Frederick Street in both directions and ended up putting a spike strip under the car to gain control of it.
No one was hurt and the driver told police it was likely a mechanical error.
