At the NFL Draft Combine in 2004, then Fresno State football player Bernard Berrian was clocked running a 40-yard dash in just over four and a half seconds. On November 30, 2009, now Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Bernard Berrian was caught speeding after he was clocked this time driving his car 104 m.p.h. in a 60 m.p.h. zone the day after his team defeated the Chicago Bears, 36-10.
Berrian became the second Minnesota Vikings player caught speeding over 100 mph after teammate Adrian Peterson was pulled over for speeding that same night. The Vikings star running back was going 109 mph in a 55 mph zone.
Our car accident lawyers know that speeding can be very dangerous no matter who you are. Professional athletes. Celebrities. You. Driving faster than you’re allowed can cause car accidents that can not only be harmful for you but for other drivers as well.
There’s never any reason for a person to be traveling 40+ m.p.h. above the speed limit. Speeding never ends well. If you get caught, there can be a large fine. If you cause a car accident, you can cause personal injury or wrongful death to you or other drivers and passengers.
According to law enforcement officials, Berrian was stopped shortly after 9:30 pm on November 30th while he was in the southbound lane of a road. Berrian was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs, but he was issued a speeding ticket.
Our car accident attorneys know speeding is a dangerous risk that drivers take. Driving at the posted speed limit can be difficult enough, but adding more speed to driving only makes it more difficult. Reactions need to be faster. Decisions need to be quicker. Why risk getting into a car accident if you can avoid it?
