OPP having to chase down a vehicle driving the wrong way on highways 403 and 407 on Saturday.
A 52 year old woman has been arrested and charged with impaired driving, failing to stop, and open liquor offenses.
Witnesses called in to OPP to report a vehicle travelling eastbound on the westbound lanes of the 403 and eventually on the 407.
Officers eventually caught up to the driver near Appleby Line, and after a couple of attempts to pin the vehicle, forced it to a full stop.
At one point, the woman tried fight off attempts to stop her vehicle by trying to drive around police cruisers.
OPP’s Kerry Schmidt says this is a dangerous situation. “At 4:00am, it’s still dark and if you were driving along the highway, you probably would not recognize the headlights of this vehicle being in you lane until it was too late. This could have led to a fatal collision.”
Police continue to investigate.
