7:33 am
pcrash i mentioned before, i-4, pthis is the crash we're pfollowing in the area of pmacintosh road. pa car has slammed into a pguardrail and was blocking a pleft lane but it looks like the pleft lane has opened and we're pseeing heavy delays, almost ptaking an hour from buckman phighway to 75 so drivers should ptake another choice. plooks like sam allen road might pbe the quickest one at this ptime. pdon't forget the second pcurrently working fatality so pthis is the second one we're pseeing with lane blocks pview. pu.s. 301 and panther trace, pnorthbound lanes are blocked. pbackups only to bear back and psouthbound delays as well. pdrivers can take bull frog creek proad. p>>laura: in light of all that pvanessa just talked about, some eople think it's cool to do pdonuts with a car.

pmiddle of a busy road. pthat type of vehicle is a crime pand this morning, pip he will as ark police want to find the pdriver. pken is live for us with the psearch to find the driver before pthis happens again and someone pgets hurt or even killed. pgood morning, ken. p>>reporter: only a matter of ptime. pevery time i see the video and pyou've seen it a couple of times pthis morning so far, i think, pwhat is this driver thinking? pthe three guys in the vehicle, pwhat are they thinking? pit's all fun and games until psomeone gets hurt and possibly peven killed. pas i've been saying all morning, pcops have seen more and more of pthis type of thing. pkids videotape it, post it on pfacebook or twitter or whatever pis trending at the time. pthey put other people's lives in pdanger. pthis particular incident phappened recently on 66th street pnorth and 121st avenue in
7:35 am
ponly a couple of days ago. pa woman just happened to see the pvehicle driving dangerously a pfew minutes before this video pwas shot and thought something pwas up. pshe was right. pshe pulls out her cell phone and pvideotapes what happens next. pthe car does that donut, that pvery dangerous donut. pthe amazing thing, it's all pintentional. pand the car takes off. pat this point, police are plooking for the car, the four pyoung guys, probably in the late pteens, early 20s, involved in pthis incident. pthey were apparently involved in pother incidents as well the same pday. pand other kids are doing the psame thing. pif you know any kids doing this, lease tell the cops and try to phead off trouble before it pactually happens. p>>laura: that's not a game. pthank you. pa manatee county deputy is on proutine administrative leave pthis morning after fatally pshooting one. pwitnesses say the deputy had no

7:37 am
plike facebook, sometimes it pallows people to go all over the pmap. p>>reporter: a fact he says keeps pyoung people alienated from the olitical process. pin fact, less than half of young eople today identify with any olitical party and less than p20% say they feel politically pengaged. ptwo all-time lows in recent pamerican politics. pone other reason so many new phampshire millennials flock to pnon main street presidential pcandidates. pand the main reason james winden pcofounded brigade, an app to pengage young people politically. phe calls it the tinder of olitics. pusers swipe their opinions on olitical issues. p>> it makes it easy to be olitical online. poip p>>reporter: users are asked
