In Cottage Grove, Oregon, 18-year-old Kimberly Messer was arrested for reckless driving and recklessly endangering another person after Oregon State Police clocked her doing 107 mph through a construction zone. According to OSP Trooper Ryan Hockema, he first attempted to initiate a traffic stop after observing Messer’s red ’95 Ford Mustang flying by him at 87 mph near a construction site. Unable to capture the teenage driver’s attention, Hockema then proceeded to watch Messer accelerate to 107 mph in a work zone, following too closely behind other drivers and executing unsafe lane changes. When Messer was finally stopped, she explained to the officer that her failure to yield to the state trooper was not an intentionally evasive action, but rather an accidental oversight. Apparently, she didn’t notice Trooper Hockema because she was too engaged in her cell phone conversation.
