Saturday evening, November 25th at about 9:30 Officer Fisher with the Plymouth Police Department was dispatched to U.S. 30 for a vehicle that was traveling west at a high rate of speed in the eastbound lanes of U.S. 30 from Apple Road.
Officer Fisher’s report states that Marshall County Police Officers located the vehicle and using radar determined him to be driving at 114 mph.
The driver was later identified as Kory Byrd, 25, of South Bend.
