Dodge Challenger Hellcat owner busted for alleged 198 mph run
Video shot by a passenger appears to show 185 mph on a public road.
A Dodge Challenger Hellcat owner faces several charges after allegedly going more than 100 mph above the posted speed limit.
An ABC11 report claims the 22-year-old driver was going 198 mph on US-1 near the Triangle Expressway in Wake County, North Carolina.
A video shows the digital speedometer apparently reading 185 mph as the car launches down the road. Another video shot from the roadside captures the Hellcat chased by a motorcycle. The 198-mph reported speed was apparently logged by the vehicle's performance app.
North Carolina State Highway Patrol received a tip that linked to a seven-minute YouTube video showcasing the alleged misdeeds, including going over 100 mph in a 40 mph zone and cranking out a few donuts.
The driver has reportedly been charged with street racing and reckless driving.
