She can’t drive 55

Woman arrested for speeding three times in one hour on Highway 70

A woman from Hayward made national headlines by getting arrested for speeding on Highway 70 three times in one hour—on her birthday.

Lynne Kathleen Cahill-Gomez, 53, was initially cited at 8:10 p.m. on March 24 by the California Highway Patrol for driving her 2007 Hyundai SUV 103 mph while en route to Paradise, according to the Los Angeles Times. She was cited a second time at 8:30 p.m. after being clocked at 105 mph, then again about 40 minutes later for driving 76 mph in a 55 mph zone. Gomez briefly resisted arrest, prompting officers to use a “minor control hold” to detain her. Nobody was hurt in the struggle.

Gomez said she was rushing to help her 79-year-old mother, who had fallen on her bad knee.
