Watch: Man drives backwards for miles through L.A.'s busy streets

A man driving an Audi decided to go on a joyride last Thursday – in reverse. For miles, the mysterious driver with a female passenger winded his way down the Hollywood hills backwards, crossing over yellow lines and almost hitting a pedestrian.

Several times, the Audi crossed the double-yellow lines, narrowly missing oncoming traffic. When the vehicle approached busy Hollywood Boulevard, still in reverse, the driver maneuvered around other cars and into the left turn lane.

"It definitely was a shocker for me," said Kevin Zanazanian, who recorded the video on his phone. The realtor said he first noticed the Audi around 4:45 p.m. Thursday afternoon near Mulholland.

Police are still looking for the driver, whose car sported car dealer plates.
