Early this morning an Indiana State Police trooper pursued a driver speeding up to 140 m.p.h. on eastbound I-94, Indiana State Police said.

According to police, at approximately 2:30 a.m. a Trooper observed a driver in a 2002 Acura driving 116 m.p.h. in a posted 55 m.p.h. zone near the 6-mile marker (nearest exit Burr Street), and the driver subsequently sped up to 140 m.p.h., weaved in and out of traffic, and used the shoulder to pass two cars in an attempt to escape the pursuit.

The driver, Dino Lorenzo Gagliano, 20, of Dyer, stopped for the Trooper at the 13.5-mile marker (nearest exit Central Ave.), police said. ISP reported Gagliano said he didnít stop at first because he was worried about his license and thought he could outrun the Trooper.

Gagliano was transported to Lake County Jail and is being charged with resisting law enforcement (Level 6 felony), reckless driving, (B misdemeanor), driving with a suspended license, speeding, unsafe lane movement, and failure to signal lane changes, according to ISP.
