Trooper unravels speeder's tall tale of dying father

MERRIMACK – A Nashua woman, pulled over for speeding last Friday, talked her way out of a speeding ticket - temporarily - when she told a trooper her father was dying at Catholic Medical Center and she needed to get to his bedside, according to state police.

The trooper let her continue on the F.E. Everett Turnpike, where she was allegedly clocked at 82 mph in a posted 65 mph zone.

But then he did a little checking and discovered CMC did not have a patient under the name Carley Williams, 28, had provided, and that Williams' father had died in 2008.

On Sunday afternoon, the trooper went to Williams' home and arrested her for driving with a suspended registration and speeding.

State police said when confronted with her father's obituary, Williams continued to be deceptive but ultimately admitted it was his.

She was booked at the Nashua police station and released on personal recognizance bail.

What's next: Williams is to be arraigned Sept. 5 in 9th Circuit Court, Merrimack District Division.
