The caller said the vehicle was traveling north on Route 47 and Beith Road in Campton Township, weaving in and out of traffic and going into oncoming traffic. The deputy traveled behind the Nissan and observed it to be speeding 65 miles an hour in a 55-mph zone and weaving within the lane, eventually stopping the car at Route 47 and Plank Road.
