RED HOOK, N.Y. (AP) — Police in New York say a car going 166 mph slammed into the back of another vehicle moments later, though both drivers escaped injury.

Police in the Dutchess County town of Red Hook tell the Kingston Daily Freeman an officer was driving on Route 9G late Wednesday night when he was passed by a 2004 Audi traveling at 140 mph. Police say the Audi driver then accelerated to 166 mph.

Authorities say a short time later the car rear-ended a Jeep. Police say they don't know how fast the Audi was going when it crashed.

Police say the 27-year-old man from nearby Staatsburg who was driving the Audi was ticketed for reckless driving, unlawfully fleeing a police officer and several traffic infractions.
