Video of speeding BMWs on social media leads to arrest


A Bronx man is under arrest after allegedly speeding over 100 miles per hour on the Long Island Expressway, in a breathtakingride that was captured on a video later uploaded to social media.

Darran Anderson, 23, was reportedly driving his mother’s blue 2009 BMW as it is seen on the video weaving through traffic and narrowly missing other cars.

Police are still looking for the driver of the second vehicle in which the video was recorded.

“Only by the grace of God, nobody was killed or seriously injured as a result of this reckless behavior,” acting Nassau County Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter reportedly said during a news conference today,according to a Newsday report. “He’s not a professional driver. He makes a mistake and people are gonna die.

“It’s not a NASCAR track, this is the Long Island Expressway,” he added. “It’s outright insanity.”

The two cars were on their way to a BMW rally in Westbury, according to the report.

“He was on his way to this rally along with many other BMW owners,” Det. Sgt. Patrick Ryder, reportedly told journalists. “He pulled up alongside one. They eyed each other and it was ‘off to the races.’”

Anderson reportedly asked the poster toremove the nowdeleted Facebook post that included the video.

“Take it down before I get in trouble,” Anderson reportedly wrote.
