(Newser) – A Florida teen faces a slew of charges after police say he hit four cars and put five people, including himself, in the hospital, reports UPI. It's not helping his case that the 18-year-old recorded it on video and posted it to YouTube under the title "Me driving like an idiot," reports WESH-TV. The five-minute video has since been removed, but police say it shows Robert Kelley speeding and driving recklessly before smashing into the back of a Toyota sedan in New Smyrna Beach on the afternoon of April 28. He then drove off and hit three more cars, smashing his own so badly that he needed to be extracted from it, police tell the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

"He wasn't concerned about anyone's safety," says a police sergeant. "He just drove in a manner, cutting people off left and right just a total disregard for our citizens." Neither Kelley nor any of the others hospitalized suffered serious injuries, but police say that's just dumb luck. Among the charges Kelley faces is driving without a license, because he's actually never been issued one.
