DUNMORE, Pa. (AP) — Police say a wrong-way driver ended up going 18 miles on an interstate in northeastern Pennsylvania.
The Times-Leader of Wilkes-Barre reports (http://bit.ly/S4zLIf ) police say traffic was light when it happened around 5:30 a.m. on New Year's Day, and no one was hurt. Police responded after getting calls about a vehicle going at high speeds the wrong direction on Interstate 81 north.
Troopers say they tried unsuccessfully to get the driver's attention using emergency lights and a spot light. Authorities say she was eventually stopped using a roadblock in Laflin, about 18 miles from where she started in Dickson City.
Police identified the driver as 22-year-old Albrightsville resident Paige Cicardo. She's been arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence and reckless endangerment. A telephone listing for her could not immediately found.
