Police: Quincy man arrested for driving over 100 mph down dangerous stretch of Hingham highway

HINGHAM, Mass. — Authorities arrested a man early Tuesday morning for allegedly driving 60 miles over the speed limit down a dark highway where a deadly crash occurred just two days prior.

Kesarjo Nebiaj, 28, of Quincy, was charged with speeding, operating to endanger, and no license in possession.

Hingham Police say Officer Michael Dunlea was monitoring traffic in the area of Route 3A (Lincoln Street) around 1:41 a.m. when he spotted Nebiaj’s car driving at a high rate of speed eastbound through an intersection. The officer’s dashcam clocked the car travelling 104 mph through a 40 mph zone, according to officials. Officer Dunlea’s hand held radar showed the car going 101 mph when it began to brake.

Dashcam video shows Nebiaj slamming the brakes, nearly crashing into a telephone pole as soon as he noticed Officer Dunlea turning on his emergency lights.

Miraculously, the car stopped short of the pole, but the force of the stoppage caused Nebiaj’s cell phone to automatically alert 9-1-1 that he was in a crash, according to police. As Officer Dunlea approached the car, a 9-1-1 dispatcher called Nebiaj to ask if he was okay.

There were no reports of any injuries.

Nebiaj was held on $1,500 cash bail until his arraignment at Hingham District Court on Tuesday. A request was also submitted to the RMV to have his drivers license suspended as an immediate threat.
