CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Ohio State Highway Patrol said a trooper clocked a motorcyclist speeding at a rate that would have been “catastrophic” if the driver crashed over the July 4 holiday weekend.

The New Philadelphia Post trooper’s radar shows the driver was going 124 miles per hour, which is twice the posted speed limit.

The posted limit on that stretch of Tuscarawas County roadway was 55 miles per hour.

“At this speed, any crash would be catastrophic for both the rider and anyone around them,” the Ohio State Highway Patrol shared on social media.
