The amorous motorist who was arrested on Easter Sunday told officers he was on his way to see his girlfriend. A Thames Valley Police spokesperson joked: “The motorist stopped going 102mph while driving to see his girlfriend and said love made him do it.

“Meatloaf, Rock Legend: ‘I’d Do Anything For Love, But I Won’t Do This!’ (Speeding?). Reported directly to court.”

According to the force, other drivers were arrested for speeding at 91mph, 90mph and 89mph.

Two others were arrested for reckless driving after engaging at high speed with a motorist deemed “not properly controlling his vehicle”, according to BuckinghamshireLive.

Meanwhile, after an unrelated incident, Thames Valley Police are appealing for witnesses after three teenage girls were seriously injured in an accident on the H3 Monks Way by Linford Wood, Milton Keynes.

A black Mercedes E-Class was heading towards V7 Saxon Street when it collided with the three girls at around 5.29pm on Saturday.

All three girls were seriously injured, two were taken to University Hospital in Milton Keynes and the third was rushed to John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.

They are all from Milton Keynes, according to police.

The Mercedes driver remained at the scene and did not require hospital treatment.


Saturday’s crash came two days after a man was killed in an accident on the A33 in Reading.

A red Kawasaki motorbike collided with cars on the southbound A33 carriageway near the junction with Rose Kiln Lane around 7.25pm ‚Äč‚Äčlast Thursday.

The motorcyclist, a 42-year-old man from Reading, died of his injuries.

Police have informed his next of kin who Thames Valley Police say are being supported by specially trained officers.

Investigator PC Gareth Miles from the Joint Roads Policing Unit said: “This collision happened at a time when the A33 was quite busy.

“I would ask any motorists we have not yet spoken to or drivers with dash cams who may have seen the motorcycle prior to the collision to contact us.”

Anyone with information or on-board camera footage can make a report by calling 101 quoting reference 43220161464.
