Wrong way driver

My sister and I were returning from a girl’s shopping weekend today and were about 1/2 mile from our exit when a SUV came the wrong way on the highway. Granted, it was driving partially on the shoulder, but boy was that scary. A vehicle was just about to begin passing us when it apparently saw this wrong way driver so it pulled back behind us. The wrong way driver then pulled into the area where the police often park (that have signs stating No U Turns). Not sure what happened after that because by then we were exiting off the highway. It all happened so fast.

lost his wife and daughter earlier this year due to this. The driver was also intoxicate, 2.5 times the legal limit. I am glad you are all okay.

the sad award for high statistics for wrong way drivers. Once or twice a week they are reported, often in the small hours. The signs have been enlarged and still it continues. We've had several fatalities. Seems like this never happened before, but now it's so frequent.
