Connecticut State police arrested a driver they said was driving over 100 miles per hour with three children in the car.

State police said troopers conducting traffic enforcement Saturday night clocked a 2005 Infiniti G35 driving 123 miles per hour on I-84 west near exit 58, where the speed limit is 55 miles per hour.

When police caught up with the vehicle they discovered the 41-year-old driver had three young passengers in the backseat – a 5-year-old, a 9-year-old and a 12-year-old. There was also a 34-year-old woman in the passenger seat.

The driver, Ricardo Torres of Terryville, was arrested and charged with reckless driving, risk of injury to a child and reckless endangerment. He was released on a $5,000 bond and is expected in court on Dec. 13.
