Portland, Oregon (KOIN) – Police said a street race event blocked the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. and Columbia Boulevard in northeastern Portland on Sunday night.
A video from social media showed the driver spinning in the middle of the intersection, and the Portland Police Department said it had received reports of fireworks being launched.
According to the PPB, the illegal rally began after 9 pm and lasted about three hours. Officers confirmed one accident, but it is unclear if anyone was injured.
According to police, the crowd was so large that police and medical personnel did not enter the area. PPB officials prioritized life-threatening phone calls, the agency said.
