17-year-old accused of driving 108mph in 40mph zone, authorities say
STAFFORD, Va. (Gray News) – A 17-year-old is facing charges after driving more than 100 mph on a road in Virginia, according to the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office.
The sheriff’s office said in a post on Facebook that Sgt. B.W. Collins saw a Ford Mustang driving 108 mph in a 40 mph zone.
Collins activated his light, but the driver kept going, passing another vehicle in a curve.
When the sergeant recognized he couldn’t catch up to the Mustang he notified other deputies in the area.
Deputy A.T. Lechemby spotted the vehicle and stopped the 17-year-old driver at Stafford Christian Church.
The sheriff’s office said the driver was released to a parent with summonses for eluding, reckless driving by speed, passing on curve, expired registration and defective brakes.
The teen will face a court date next year.
