In two separate incidents in the last week, wrong-way drivers on the highway caused tragedies to occur.
– A driver of an SUV was also killed after driving the wrong way on Interstate 35E and crashing head-on into another driver in the southbound lanes of I-35E at Minnesota 96. Four vehicles were involved in the resulting collision.
