ROSENDALE, N.Y.-- Authorities say a 28-year-old man in upstate New York has been charged with driving his motorcycle at nearly 200 mph on a highway in the rain.
State police say a trooper clocked Anthony Anderson of Poughkeepsie driving at 193 mph around 8 p.m. Wednesday in the southbound lanes of Interstate 87 just south of Albany -- the same stretch of road where another motorcyclist was spotted doing 166 mph earlier this month.
The trooper was able to get a description of the high-performance bike and alerted nearby patrols.
Troopers eventually stopped Anderson in the town of Rosendale. He told them he was headed to a hospital to visit a patient.
Anderson was issued 14 traffic tickets, including one for speeding.
It couldn't be immediately determined if he had a lawyer.
