Georgia police clocked a 33-year-old man going at least 131 mph while driving down a highway Saturday morning before he crashed.

The unidentified suspect evaded police while driving his Volvo down Ga. 400 in Alpharetta before crashing into a concrete median and flipping over a guardrail, according to a Facebook post by the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety.

Police attempted to catch up with the driver, who reportedly accelerated when he saw the flashing blue lights of the officer’s vehicle.
