It was reported to Westport Police that the vehicle was traveling in excess of 100 mph.

About 2 miles into Westport, a Westport Officer witnessed the vehicle pass by the Davis Road intersection. The officer immediately lost sight of the BMW and chose to travel on State Road as opposed to other possible turns the car may have taken.
