It's been awhile since I've reported on wrong-way crashes. They haven't gone away, I've just had other things to focus on. So in keeping with our tradition of reporting on wrong-way stories, wrong-way crashes and wrong-way interstate highway events here are the latest and greatest crashes. We have reports from Boston, Rochester, Colorado Springs, Indio, Denver, Hobe Sound, Billings, Palm Beach, Greece, Verdigris, Charlotte, Cornelius, Detroit, North Jersey, Holyoke, Buffalo, and Mechanicsville in Maryland, Holyoke and Mecklenburg County. We have most involving alcohol or drunk driving, one driver attempting to avoid arrest and one having nothing to do with drunk driving. If you're interested in the causes; or how to spot a wrong-way driver and how to avoid being in a wrong-way interstate highway accident, then read to the end of this post.
