DARIEN, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut State Police say a woman driving the wrong way on Interstate 95 crashed into a police cruiser driven by a trooper who was dispatched to stop her.
Police say they began getting calls shortly after midnight Monday about a 2016 Audi driving the wrong way near Exit 6 in Stamford. The car was reportedly driving at a high rate of speed and had several near misses.
Police say a trooper near Exit 12 in Darien located the Audi, and it crashed into him.
Twenty-six-year-old Ashton Steen, of Darien, was charged with driving under the influence and other charges. Police say she admitted she was drinking and thought she was in New Jersey.
