Monday, November 20, 2017

PUTNAMVILLE -- A 20-year-old Bloomington woman, already ticketed for doing 118 mph on Interstate 74 Sunday afternoon, got a second ticket five minutes later for 90 mph, Indiana State Police at Putnamville reported.

At 4:53 p.m., Indiana State Police Master Trooper Don Farris was patrolling eastbound I-74 near the 23-mile marker, when a beige 2013 BMW approached the rear of his unmarked ISP commission at 118 mph in a 70-mph zone.

The BMW was stopped and M/Trooper Farris informed the young woman of the violation. During conversation, the Bloomington resident stated there was no emergency, but she was trying to get to Bloomington before dark, because as she said, I dont drive too well at night.

The young woman was cited into Attica City Court (Fountain County) for reckless driving (a misdemeanor) and released.

Approximately five minutes later, the same vehicle and driver, again sped up behind M/Trp. Farris, this time at 90 mph in a 70-mph zone.

The young lady was stopped near the 28-mile marker and cited into Montgomery County Court at Crawfordsville for 90 mph in a 70-mph zone before again being released.
