Maine Woman Clocked at 127 MPH on I-95 in New Hampshire
A Maine woman was clocked at 127 mph on Interstate 95 early Wednesday morning by a State Police trooper in North Hampton and Greenland.
A New Hampshire State Police trooper on patrol saw a 2015 BMW 5-Series speeding north around 2:55 p.m., and estimated its speed to be 118 mph. Before driver Hayley Lawrence, 18, of Eliot stopped her speeding, she allegedly reached 127 mph.
Lawrence was taken into custody, charged with reckless driving, and released pending an appearance in district court on November 21.
She's the latest triple digit speeder on New Hampshire roads this year.
The highest clocked speed was 140 mph by a 2010 Infiniti sedan on Route 101 between Exits 8 and 7 on September 24. Two days later, a 2013 Honda Accord hit 111 mph September 26 on Route 202 in Rochester.
In February, a driver from Connecticut sped along I-95 in Hampton Falls at 127 mph, and told police she didn't realize her speed.
