PLATTE CITY, MO (KCTV/AP) - The Missouri State Highway Patrol says more than 40 motorcycles and racing cars held up traffic while performing stunts on Interstate 435 in Platte County.

The patrol says the racers buzzed other drivers and caused a traffic jam on Interstate 435 in Platte County Sunday evening. They blocked three lanes of highway traffic while recording each other performing stunts.

The riders were weaving through traffic, racing and performing motorcycle stunts.

"We also got reports that they were knocking on windows of motorists," said Sgt. D.J. Hedrick of the Missouri Highway Patrol. "They're trying to bully."

Patrol spokesman Collin Stosberg says if the racers are caught, they could face charges of impeding traffic and careless driving.

The Lowlife Car Cruise started in Shawnee Mission Park and went to Front Street in Kansas City. But as the riders headed north on I-435 that's when issues occurred by up to 30 motorcyclists who wanted to show off.

A biker apparently named Zane Ali posted on social media bragging about being responsible for the stunts. Ali laughed about what occurred.

Hedrick said it's no laughing matter. Troopers are looking into whether drivers of cars were part of an organized shut down of the interstate.
