US authorities said a man angered over people driving dangerously on a busy road in Florida appeared to intentionally cause a crash there to highlight the problem.

The Daily Commercial said 61-year-old Bruce John Homer told Lake County Sheriff's Office deputies who responded to the accident that he was frustrated law enforcement would not crack down on people driving through a stop sign.

The driver of the vehicle that was hit said Mr Homer pulled out in front of him as he was going through the junction. The driver said Mr Homer approached him after the crash, telling him he had passed the stop sign and law enforcement "won't do anything until someone dies". Mr Homer is charged with aggravated battery and reckless driving.
