SALEM, ORE. (AP) - A woman accused of driving 103 mph with her 10-year-old grandson was on leave from a job at the state Driver and Motor Vehicle Services. The 53-year-old driver was arrested Sunday on charges of reckless driving and reckless endangering. Investigators said she told them she was teaching her grandson about the dangers of speeding, telling him not to drive as she was about to.

David House, an Oregon Department of Transportation spokesman, told the Salem Statesman Journal that the woman joined the DMV in 1988 and was placed on leave March 16.

The agency would not give a reason for her leave. House could not say how her arrest will affect her employment.
