    Authorities say a man angered over people driving dangerously through a busy Florida intersection appeared to intentionally cause a crash there to highlight the problem.

    The Daily Commercial reports 61-year-old Bruce John Homer told Lake County Sheriff's Office deputies who responded to the Sunday afternoon accident that he was frustrated law enforcement wouldn't crack down on people running through a stop sign at the intersection.

    The driver of the SUV that was hit says Homer pulled out in front of him as he was going through the intersection. The driver says Homer approached him after the crash, telling him he'd run the stop sign and law enforcement "won't do anything until someone dies."

    Homer is charged with aggravated battery and reckless driving. It's unclear if he has a lawyer.
