    A Vermont man is facing multiple charges after he was clocked driving 110 mph on Interstate 91 with a 7-year-old child in the back seat who was not properly secured by a seatbelt.

    At 9:41 p.m. Monday, Vermont State Police stopped a vehicle for speeding on I-91 near mile marker 43 in Springfield, Vermont. The driver was doing 110 mph in a posted 65 mph zone. While speaking with the driver, police observed that his 7-year-old son was present in the vehicle.
