A woman was recently charged with DUI after driving down the Kennedy Expressway
going inbound when she was supposed to be going outbound. Unfortunately,
she collided with another vehicle and seriously injured the other driver
as she ws slapped with severe charges and has a long road of fines and
court time ahead of her.
The woman was found with a strong smell of alcohol, and was unconscious
at the scene according to the Police Trooper. Not only was she intoxicated,
but she was driving without a driver's license as well. She was obviously
not well equipped to face what was going to happen to her next after she
had gotten behind the wheel after drinking.
The stage of the accident was created by the woman's silver Chrysler
Sebring which clipped a semi truck and a black Mazda and then both crashed
head on at about 4:20 A.M The driver of the other car was a 34-year old
Chicago woman who has suffered fractures to her legs but this poor woman
was conscious when the firefighters and police arrived. Both drivers had
to be extricated from their cars and, though the scene was brutal, were
lucky enough to escape alive .
We have blogged about similar Wrong-Way drunken driving accidents that
have occurred quite recently. This crash is at least the fourth time this
month that just a regular driver headed the wrong way on an area expressway
that has caused an accident that resulted in severe and critically damaging injuries.
