Drivers Terrorized By Speeding Porsche Call 911

WEDDINGTON, N.C. -- A sports car seen repeatedly going 100 mph, and dodging in and out of traffic has Union County neighbors on edge.

Deputies are trying to figure out who is driving the car.

It is believed to be a newer model white Porsche 911 GT3 with red accents.

The driver's antics over the last couple of weeks prompted 911 calls.

"He went by so fast, he was like a blur. He had to be going over 100," said a caller.

The car has been spotted on Antioch Church Road, Hemby Road and Potter Road in the Weddington area, where 35 to 45 mph is the law.

"He's passing people in the 'no passing area' on turns. He's got to be doing about 100. I mean he is dodging in and out and he thinks he is God's gift to the world," the 911 caller said.

Sam Morrison prefers a much slower pace.

"Just the peace of mind."

Morrison's fishing hole is right next to one of the roads where that Porsche flies by.

It's just two lanes with no shoulder. He drives it every day, so too his wife and kids.

The thought anyone would repeatedly drive that fast on purpose with so many others around ticks him off.

"You would think people would care considering this is a nice, quiet community," he said.

Then we told Morrison what witnesses also saw: the Porsche driver passing five cars at the same time and crossing the center line into the oncoming traffic lane to do so.

"Unbelievable," he said. "You would think that at that point you would really care about other people's lives."

Deputies say the driver poses a threat to himself and everyone else on the road.

"He's a maniac. He's going to kill somebody. He's passing on curves at the yellow line," the 911 caller says.

Deputies are driving through neighborhoods looking for the car and want to talk to the driver.

Despite several witnesses seeing the excessive speeding, officials say they can't issue a speeding ticket unless the driver is caught in the act.

Deputies don't have much to go on right now, including no tag number and no driver description.
