N.H. Police: Mass. Man Clocked At 116 MPH In Ashland

ASHLAND, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire state police say they clocked a Massachusetts man driving at 116 mph on Interstate 93 northbound in Ashland Sunday morning.

Authorities say 19-year-old Andrew Tham of Middleton, Massachusetts, was charged with reckless operation after the 7 a.m. stop.

Police say Tham drove past two troopers parked in a crossover in Ashland so fast that the wind caused both cruisers to shake. The speed limit on that stretch of highway is 70 mph. Tham was driving a 2016 Subaru Forester.

Tham is due in Plymouth District Court on March 24.
