A 28-year-old man has been charged with riding at nearly 200mph on this road in the rain on Wednesday evening.

It's just south of Albany in the state of New York and the same location another rider was clocked doing 166mph a few weeks previously.

Police say Anthony Anderson was doing 193 mph on Interstate 87 when he was spotted by an officer.

He was eventually stopped in the town of Rosendale where fast-thinking Anderson told police he was, erm, headed to, uh, hospital to visit a, um, patient.
