Driver going 140 mph stopped with help of Nebraska State Patrol airplane

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- The Nebraska State Patrol credits the work of an NSP airplane in helping to track and stop a driver clocked going 140 mph on I-680 in Omaha.

On Tuesday morning, March 15th, a State Trooper clocked a blue Pontiac GTO traveling northbound on I-680 at a rate of 140 mph. When the trooper attempted a traffic stop near the Irvington exit, the car briefly stopped before driving through the median and heading southbound on I-680.

An Nebraska State Patrol airplane followed the car for about 15 minutes until the driver reached a residence near 48th Avenue and W Street. State troopers met the driver there and took him into custody.

21-year-old Jared Gooden faces charges of speeding, willful reckless driving, driving under suspension, flight to avoid arrest, no registration, and no insurance. He is being kept at Douglas County Corrections.
