A Santa Clarita Valley man who was reportedly recorded driving through Saugus with his friends while using his foot to steer the vehicle was involved in an accident with another vehicle. The driver of the SUV was taken into custody on Friday and is now facing charges on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.
20-year-old Victor Canasmoreira was driving an SUV with three of his friends riding along on the evening of February 12. One of the passengers began recording a part of their excursion from inside of the vehicle and uploaded the video to Snapchat. The driver, later identified as Canasmoreira, was seen joking around with the others and with his foot resting on the steering wheel appearing as if he was steering with his leg.
Around 10:30 p.m., nearly two hours after the video was uploaded, Canasmoreira was cruising around a bend in the road while allegedly speeding and swerved out of his lane across the painted double yellow lines. As the SUV veered into the oncoming lane a sedan collided into its side resulting in an accident that reportedly caused injuries to both of the drivers and all three of the passengers.
