SAN FRANCISCO — Authorities are trying to identify a driver who performed a stunt on the Golden Gate Bridge while other vehicles blocked traffic.

Video that has surfaced online shows the driver doing doughnuts on the bridge in a sports car. California Highway Patrol Officer Andrew Barclay tells the Marin Independent Journal (http://bit.ly/1pi44tf) the CHP received a call about numerous other vehicles stopping traffic on Sunday afternoon to allow the stunt.

Barclay says the vehicles endangered themselves, pedestrians on the bridge's sidewalk and other drivers.

Similar stunts have occurred on highways in Oakland.
