The Nebraska State Patrol says a driver with a need for speed is behind bars after leading troopers on a pursuit Monday night that reached speeds of 132 MPH.
It began just before 8:00 on I-80 when a trooper observed a westbound Ford Mustang traveling in excess of 120 miles per hour near mile marker 400. Communication was made with another trooper further ahead on I-80.
That trooper pulled over to wait for the Mustang. When it passed the trooper at more than 120 miles per hour, the chase was on..
The Mustang exited I-80 at NW 48th St. and began traveling north. The trooper then observed the Mustang increase its speed to 132 miles per hour in the 45 miles per hour zone. At that point, the trooper discontinued the pursuit out of a concern for safety of the public.
A short time later, the vehicle was seen turning east into a neighborhood. The trooper was able to locate the Mustang as it parked in front of a home on NW 45th St. 20 year old Holden Ludwig of Lincoln was arrested for speeding, willful reckless driving and operating a motor vehicle to avoid arrest.
