A teenager has lost both his licence and his car after police pulled over a vehicle going nearly double the speed limit on Highway 403 in Mississauga on Sunday night.

Police said the Audi S5 was clocked at 185 km/hr.

The 18-year-old driver, who has his G2 licence, was charged with stunt driving and the vehicle was impounded.

Under Ontario’s graduated licence system the G2 driver has had his licence suspended for 30 days.

That same night, a 22-year-old G1 driver was also caught going 160 km/hr along the same stretch of highway.

Police said that person has also been charged with stunt driving as well as multiple G1 offences. The vehicle has also been impounded.

Police said the two incidents are not connected.
