Another 100+ MPH Speeding Teen from Colorado Busted in Nebraska
There must be something in the water that is giving teenagers from Colorado the uncontrollable urge to flee from Nebraska State Troopers at speeds of over 100 MPH. Why do we say this? Because this is the second incident in less than two weeks that a Colorado teenager has tried to outrun law enforcement in the Cornhusker State.
According to the Nebraska State Patrol, an 18-year-old male from Colorado was clocked at over 100 MPH on westbound Interstate 80 at mile marker 435 near Gretna, Nebraska. The responding trooper attempted to stop the teen driving a Subaru WRX.
The teenager, rather than knowing when it was time to throw in the towel on a high-speed joy ride, decided to up the ante and refused to pull over for the trooper while accelerating in speed. The teenage driver reached speeds of 150 MPH and the pursuit took place over the course of approximately 10 miles before the vehicle came to a stop due to engine failure.
Nebraska State Troopers took the 18-year-old male into custody and booked into Sarpy County Jail for willful reckless driving and flight to avoid arrest. If you happen to be a teenager from Colorado that will be driving in Nebraska, you might want to obey the posted speed limits as Colorado teens driving in the state and attempting to evade law enforcement is now 0-2 in 2023.
