NASHUA – State Police arrested a Hudson man they said was racing another car on F.E. Everett Turnpike Wednesday morning topping speeds of 130 mph.

Kenneth Guertin, 45, of Hudson, was charged with felony reckless conduct after Trooper Kieran Fagan stopped him in his black Toyota Supra while the other car, a Subaru WRX, got away, according to police.

Guertin is the third man this week to be arrested on felony charges after hitting dangerous speeds on New Hampshire highways.

Fagan was patrolling the turnpike and heading north near Exit 4 in Nashua just after 7 a.m. Wednesday when two cars racing one another passed him. He clocked their speed at 132 mph – 77 mph over the posted speed limit in that area – police said.

He pulled over Guertin’s Toyota Supra coupe and charged him with reckless conduct and criminal mischief. He was freed on bail and will be arraigned at Nashua district court on Aug. 6, police said.

Police are looking for the driver of the second car, a gray Subaru WRX, and asked anyone with information to contact the NHSP Troop B Barracks at 666-3333.

Police on the Seacoast made a similar arrest less than an hour after Guertin was stopped.

State police were conducting a special patrol with an airplane on I-95 in Greenland when they spotted a motorcycle passing traffic going 107 mph in a 65 mph zone. Scott Gardiner, 22, of Hampton, was pulled over and charged with felony reckless driving. He will appear at Portsmouth district court on Sept. 8, police said.

Early Tuesday morning Nicholas Cammann, 32, of Aquinnah, Mass., led police in two states on a chase that stretched 40 miles until he crashed and fled on foot in Newburyport, Mass., police said.

Police said multiple calls alerted them to a Pontiac Grand Am operating erratically on Route 101A in Candia, traveling very fast and passing other vehicles using the breakdown lane.

Cammann avoided multiple attempts by police to stop him, including spiked strips used in Hampton. He eventually crashed into a set of jersey barriers at a construction site on Route 95 in Newburyport, police said.

Cammann was arrested after a short foot pursuit and is charged with disobeying an officer, reckless operation and reckless conduct, police said.
