INDIANAPOLIS — A wrong way driver has been arrested after a serious crash on I-70 near downtown Indianapolis.
Friday morning, at around 1:12 a.m., State Police began receiving calls about the wrong-way driver, who was traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes of I-70, near the 85 mile marker.
While dispatchers were on the phone with one witness, the wrong-way driver hit another car head-on.
The driver of the wrong-way vehicle — a Ford Mustang — was not hurt, but three people inside the other vehicle — a Jeep — were taken to the hospital. Those three people, including two adults and one child, had non life-threatening injuries.
Police believe the Mustang, driven by 40-year-old Latasha Williams of Indianapolis, entered I-70 going the wrong direction from downtown Indy. She then traveled eastbound in the westbound lanes before colliding with the Jeep.
Williams did take a few sobriety tests, as well as a certified blood test. The results of that test are still pending; however, police say her BAC was at the very least about a .15.
She is now in the Marion County Jail on the following charges: OWI causing Serious Bodily Injury; OWI with a BAC of .08 or more Causing Serious Bodily Injury; OWI Endangerment; and OWI with a BAC above .15.
