NSP Aircraft Helps Nab Speeding Driver

(Omaha, Neb.)- A speeding, reckless driver is in jail after his vehicle is clocked traveling 140 mph on I-680 in Omaha.

On Tuesday morning, March 15, Nebraska State Patrol Troop A- Omaha was conducting traffic enforcement in the Omaha metro when an NSP aircraft clocked a blue Pontiac GTO traveling northbound at 140 mph on I-680. A trooper attempted a traffic stop near the Irvington Exit. The driver of the car stopped briefly before driving through the median and heading southbound on I-680.

The Nebraska State Patrol airplane continued to follow the car for approximately 15 minutes from the air before the driver stopped at a residence at 5808 S. 48th Avenue.  Troopers then contacted the driver at the residence and took him into custody.

“This individual had complete disregard for the safety of others on the road around him,” said Captain Brenda Konfrst, Commander Troop A-Omaha. “We are fortunate his reckless actions didn’t cause an accident and take someone’s life.”

The driver of the vehicle, Jared B. Gooden, 21, Omaha, was lodged in the Douglas County Corrections on charges to include, speeding, willful reckless driving, driving under suspension, flight to avoid arrest, no registration and no insurance.  ###
