NH man accused of driving 104 mph in 65 mph speed zone, says he was 'late for work'
HOPKINTON — A Boscawen man is accused of driving 104 mph in a 65 mph speed zone around 9:40 a.m. Saturday.
The New Hampshire State Police Special Enforcement Unit was monitoring traffic from the State Police aircraft on I-89 Northbound in the Town of Hopkinton when they detected a car traveling at an "extremely high rate of speed," according to State Police.
The 2007 Toyota Rav4, driven by Robert Morrill, 53, passed a trooper stationed on I-89, and the officer ultimately pulled him over.
When asked why he was speeding, Morrill told police that he was late to work at a local ski area, police said.
Police charged him with reckless driving. Morrill is due to appear in the Concord Circuit Court to answer to this charge on April 28 at 8 a.m.
