Brewer Woman Charged with OUI After Driving the Wrong Way on I-95
A Brewer woman is facing charges after driving the wrong way on I-95 while allegedly intoxicated.
Maine State Police began receiving reports of a wrong-way driver at approximately 10 PM. Wednesday, February 23.
Trooper Bean responded to the calls and reportedly stopped the driver near the Orono exit of the highway. At the time, police say, the woman was traveling northbound in the southbound lane of the interstate. Before stopping the vehicle, the police cruiser's dashcam caught the image in this post from the Maine State Police Facebook page of her headlights heading toward them. It's a sight we all hope never to see when traveling on any road, but especially on the highway.
Police got the vehicle to stop and questioned the 29-year-old woman, who was allegedly found to be intoxicated. She's now charged with operating under the influence and driving to endanger. The driver's name has not been released.
No one was injured in the incident.
