Man clocked at 127 mph on I-93 in N.H.

New Hampshire State Police said an airborne patrol unit clocked a man driving 127 miles per hour on Interstate 93 in the town of Northfield. The State Police Special Enforcement Unit was using an airplane to monitor traffic Saturday morning when the trooper in the aircraft saw a northbound vehicle traveling at high speed. Police said the tactical flight officer twice clocked the vehicle traveling in excess of 100 miles per hour, with the fastest at 127 miles per hour. The driver, stopped by troopers on the ground, was identified as Ryan Quinn, 19, of Newport, R.I. Quinn was charged with reckless driving and two counts of possession of a controlled drug. He’s due to appear in Franklin District Court in January. (AP)
