Watch: Father son busted after crashing Corvettes while racing through tunnel

Pair arrested after posting dashcam video

1y ago

A father and his son were arrested this past week after posting dashcam video of their high-speed crash in the Lincoln Tunnel on social media.

Fred Ordine, 44, and his son Chadwick Quinones, 25, were drag racing in the tunnel Feb. 9 when one of the pair lost control and spun sweeping up several other cars. Both men fled the scene, but Quinones came back later and was ticketed for leaving the scene of an accident, careless driving and no registration. Police reopened the investigation after Quinones posted the video to social media earlier this month. He quickly deleted it, but several others picked it up and reposted it tagging Quinones.

Law enforcement arrested the pair this week and Quinones and Ordine were charged with reckless endangerment, reckless driving and an illegal speed contest.

"We are committed to tracking down people who commit this type of reckless behavior and prosecuting them,” Port Authority Police Chief Detective Matthew Wilson told local media. “In doing so, we hope to deter others from doing the same.”
