Sarasota police say this close call should serve as a warning not to run red lights. Take a look at the video.
This is the intersection of Bee Ridge Road and US 41 in Sarasota. As the light turns red, a dump truck in the middle lane keeps going – as a car going the opposite direction starts to turn. The truck narrowly misses that car and oncoming traffic. It then jumps a curb and finally lands in a parking lot, nearly hitting a building.
No one was hurt. The driver, Todd Masters, of Port Charlotte, was given a citation for failing to stop at a red light.
