What do you do if you are 22 and have access to a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat? … 198 mph that’s what you do! That brings a whole new meaning to the word ‘reckless’. It recently happened in North Carolina.
22-year-old William Jefferson the owner of a 707 hp Hellcat tested the cars performance limits under the cover of darkness. And of corse he videoed his antics and before long, the clip landed on YouTube, getting Jefferson is seriously hot water.
The incriminating video shows Jefferson doing almost 130 mph over the speed limit on the US-1 near the Triangle Expressway. Footage also shows the 22-year-old going more than 100 mph in a 40 mph zone and putting the camera up to his dash when it reads an extraordinary 198 mph.
As if that wasn’t enough, the video also shows Jefferson doing donuts in the muscle car.
According to the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, they were shown the footage by someone who filed a complaint against Jefferson. Jefferson was arrested and charged with street racing and reckless driving.
