A wrong way crash on 490 Saturday night sends one man to the hospital.
State police say the crash happened on 490 eastbound, near the South Avenue exit, after the driver Brittany Dearcop was going the wrong way and collided with another car. Police say she was drunk at the time of the accident.
Nahshon Miller, the driver who was hit, says this is the second head on collision he’s been involved in this year.
“We’re coming off the Inner Loop and this drunken lady, coming the completely wrong way, smacks into us head on. I don’t even understand it. She was talking about how the GPS sent her that way,” said Miller.
Investigators say Dearcop’s passenger was injured. He was transported to the hospital, but it is still unknown if his injuries were minor or life threatening.
Dearcop was arrested at the scene and charged with DWI.
