P-plater nabbed speeding with friends

JUST hours after the funeral for a Border teen killed in a high-speed crash, another P-plater has been caught travelling at a treacherous speed.

The Victorian man, 21, was caught rocketing down the Hume Freeway at 175 km/h with two friends in the car.

He was pulled over near Woomargama at 3.30am today.

The P-plater had his licence suspended and will have to pay a $1915 fine.

Albury inspector David Cottee said the speed the man was travelling at was “inherently dangerous”.
