    A gathering of car aficionados turned terrifying when a car lost control and plowed into a group of bystanders Saturday night.

    The car was illegally doing donuts at a K-Mart parking lot near the intersection of Rosecrans Avenue and McNab Avenue in Bellflower when it seemingly lost control and plowed into hundreds of onlookers, sending them scattering, said a spokesperson with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Lakewood station.

    Video of the incident shows people hitting the car, but the crowd dispersed when police arrived. While no injuries were reported, those hit by the car may have transported themselves to the hospital, the spokesperson said.

    The gathering was organized by The Big Bang Meets car club and originally began in Cerritos before moving to a Long Beach parking lot and then making its way to the K-Mart parking lot in Bellflower, the spokesperson said.

    Lakewood sheriffs are now examining video of the inciident to "prosecute those involved." The car in question is described as a white Ford Mustang with a tan soft top roof.
