Los Angeles police offered a $1,000 reward as they searched for the driver a rented Tesla who tried to pull off a dangerous stunt early Sunday in Echo Park but crashed into two parked cars.

The incident happened shortly after midnight near Baxter and Alvarado streets, the LAPD reported. 

“That was wild to watch. Too much too much way too much,” Sandy Hawkins, a witness, said.

“A lot of stunts and tricks. YouTube is the source of it all,” said Jordan Hooks, the owner of a Subaru that was one of the vehicles hit.

He says the driver likely did this for likes, follows and one minute of YouTube fame.

“With this there was no accountability we are just going to do this we are not going to talk to any of the neighbors damage a bunch of stuff and just take off,” Hooks said.

The rented Tesla was then abandoned and the driver fled the scene.

Baxter Street is known as the steepest hill in Los Angeles and has attracted lots of people doing stunts looking for internet fame.

There was no immediate description of the driver who will likely face hit-and-run charges, the station reported. 

Anyone with information on the driver was asked to call the LAPD at 213-833-3713 or 877-527-3247. Tipsters can also call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
