Woman arrested after getting three speeding tickets in an hour

How fast is too fast? For a Hayward woman thrown in jail, it was three times in an hour, including twice at speeds over 100 miles an hour, according to reports.

Lynne Kathleen Cahill-Gomez was pulled over for speeding three times between 8:10 p.m. and 9:08 p.m. on Saturday on Highway 70 in Yuba County, according to the Marysville Appeal-Democrat.

She was pulled over for driving a Hyundai SUV 103 miles per hour and then again for going 105 miles per hour by 8:30 p.m. Then, 40 minutes later, she was pulled over for going 76 miles per hour, the newspaper reported.

She told officers she was in a hurry to get to Butte County to care for a sick relative, the newspaper reported.

California Highway Patrol officers arrested her for reckless driving. She was booked into jail but later released, and will be arraigned in Yuba County on April 19.
