SHAFTSBURY - Slick roads didn’t prevent a New Yorker from driving more than 100 mph Saturday afternoon, police said.
Jay Philippi, 32, of Cold Spring, N.Y., is facing a charge of negligent operation after state police allegedly stopped him for driving 101 mph on Route 7.
“Road conditions were slippery at the time, with a layer of slush and snow covering the roadway,” said State Trooper Justin Walker in a statement.
The posted speed limit is 55 mph.
Philippi is scheduled to answer the charge March 24 in Bennington criminal court.MORE IN This Just InTOMORROW'S HEADLINES TODAY: Rutland Free Library director Paula Baker will retire at the end of the year, state Senate will vote on new minimum wage legislation and Bennington College graduates win Pulitzer Prizes for fiction and biography. 0Rutland Herald News Editor Alan Keays and staff writer Brent Curtis discuss some of the stories...
