Police say Hancock County man driving 100 mph in work zone

CLAY COUNTY — A Hancock County man was arrested Monday on suspicion of speeding 100 miles per hour through a construction zone on Interstate 70 in Putnam County, according to an Indiana State Police press release.

Brandon G. Barngrover, 29, of Wilkinson, reportedly told police he was late for work in Sullivan County.

Barngrover’s westbound 2011 Chevrolet Camaro was clocked by police at 100 miles per hour near the 39-mile marker west of the Cloverdale exit. The vehicle was stopped by Indiana State Police near the 28-mile marker in Clay County.

At 11:45 a.m. Monday, IDP dispatchers notified Putnamville troopers along I-70 of the westbound car after receiving several telephone complaints about a Camaro that was reported to be traveling recklessly at a high rate of speed.

Trooper Mike Wood noticed the car passing other vehicles without using turn signals, and continuing at a high speed through two sets of flashing 45 mile-per-hour construction zone signs. Wood pursued and stopped the vehicle in eastern Clay County.

Barngrover was arrested and lodged in the Putnam County Jail on reckless driving charges. His car was impounded.
