Wrong-way driver

I believe I saw the tail end of this when I went to the airport yesterday morning.

Thank God no one was killed.

A suspected drunken driver traveling in the wrong direction on U.S. 281 North slammed into two other vehicles early Sunday morning, injuring four people, authorities said.

Authorities said Nathan Michael Smith, 30, was driving in the wrong direction in the southbound lanes of U.S. 281 North near Nakoma just after 3:30 a.m. Sunday when the collision occurred, according to a San Antonio Police Department incident report.

The report states that Smith admitted to drinking earlier, had blood-shot eyes and slurred speech and smelled strongly of alcohol. He was taken to Brooke Army Medical Center.
