Wrong Way Driver
A tow truck driver from Baltimore has been hit with serious charges, after he allegedly drove drunk and caused a wrong-way crash into a van full of teenagers on the Van Wyck Expressway in Queens.
A driver travelling the wrong way on the FDR drive caused a fatal chain reaction crash early Sunday morning.
The arrests are the fourth and fifth incidents of wrong-way driving in a month. Unlike the other incidents, however, neither arrest early Thursday involved accidents or injuries.
Police say a driver went the wrong way on the Long Island Expressway, smashed his minivan into a guard rail and killed a passenger riding with him.
