Since her 18th birthday earlier this year, Connie Nydam has raked in five driving convictions and two licence suspensions.
Yesterday, police accused her of speeding up the Don Valley Parkway with three passengers, evading arrest and driving while disqualified -- and impaired.
It was 2:40 a.m. when a Toronto Police officer clocked a Toyota Rav4 doing 139 km/h along the 90 km/h DVP.
The SUV then went north before exiting on Lawrence Ave. E., then pulling a U-turn back to the northbound DVP.
The SUV then went back onto the DVP and accelerated to 170 km/h to evade the cruiser, Sgt. Tim Burrows said.
As the vehicle entered the Hwy. 401 westbound ramp, it hit a guard rail. The driver then fled on foot.
Nydam allegedly assaulted a police officer during her arrest at Victoria Park Ave., near York Mills Rd.
She was charged with dangerous driving, failing to stop for police, impaired driving, failing to stop after an accident, driving while disqualified, failing to comply with probation and assault.
Nydam, who turned 18 Feb 22, has a long list of infractions:
- MARCH 4: Failing to stop at an intersection April 28, 2008.
- MARCH 18: Going 75 km/h in a 60 zone, May 16, 2008.
