How Drunk Do You Have to Be...

To drive the wrong way in lanes on an interstate highway? This was at 9:30 in the morning. Blue Ash officer awarded for stopping wrong-way driver on 71.

Although they didn't mention alcohol, they did arrest the driver for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Officers were advised of a vehicle traveling southbound in the northbound lanes of I-71 around 9:15 a.m. on May 31.

The vehicle had already caused a crash and narrowly missed causing several others, police said.

There is a video at the link above, though it isn't particularly fascinating. It is 2 minutes long.

I actually found the video first (on YouTube) and went looking for a news story. I was actually shocked to discover how many stories of wrong-way driving there are, when my first search was a bit broad.

  1. Go watch the documentary "There's Something Wrong With Aunt Diane". Heartbreaking. On the up side we'll never know what level of family destruction this officer prevented.
