Wrong Way Driver Arrested for DUI

There were tense moments when Nevada County Sheriff’s Deputies saw a wrong way driver on the freeway near Dorsey Drive over crossing. CHP Officer Jeff Pingree says the Deputies spotted the wrong way driver late Tuesday evening when her 2002 Toyota Rav 4 was going the wrong direction on the freeway.

“At about 10:30 our officers got a call that the Nevada County Sheriff’s Department had stopped a wrong way driver on State Route 20 by Dorsey Drive. They contacted the Sheriff’s Deputies and apparently she had been driving the wrong way when they got her stopped.”

The driver, a 63 year old woman from Grass Valley, was taken into custody for suspicion of driving under the influence.
