Florida teen charged in deaths of 6 people after driving BMW at 151 mph

A Florida teen has been charged with vehicular homicide for driving 151 mph in a crash that killed six people — after posting videos of himself going even faster and asking people to guess the speeds for $25, authorities said.

Noah Thomas Galle, 17, was slapped with six counts of vehicular homicide Tuesday after he slammed his 2019 BMW M5 into an SUV carrying the people in Delray Beach on Jan. 27, WPBF reported.

When a deputy asked Galle on the way to a hospital how fast he’d been driving, the teen reportedly answered “above 120.”

Investigators with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office believe the Wellington resident, who suffered minor injuries, was under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs at the time of the 10:58 p.m. crash, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

During the investigation, someone tipped off police that Galle had “recorded himself driving at an extremely high rate of speed” two weeks earlier and posted the daredevil footage on Instagram and TikTok, the paper reported.

Police executing a search warrant for his Instagram account discovered that he had recorded himself driving 182 mph on Interstate 95 in the same luxury Beemer.

In the comments section, the teen reportedly wrote that “the first person to guess the MPH gets 25 cashapp,” referring to the mobile payment service Cash App.

A standard 2019 BMW M5 is electronically limited to 155 mph, but the competition model — priced at about $111,000 — allows it to reach 189 mph, according to a BMW dealer website cited by the paper.

The police report did not specify which model Galle was driving.

In the Jan. 27 crash, Galle slammed into the rear of a Nissan Rogue, killing driver Mirlaine Julceus, 44, Remize Michel, 52, Marie M. Louis, Filaine Dieu, 45, and Vanice Percina, 28.

The name of the sixth person has not been released.

The six people were reportedly workers who were leaving their jobs at Pero Family Farms.
