Elderly driver accidentally travels wrong way down Interstate 20

Earlier this afternoon, the Arlington Police Department responded to multiple 9-1-1 calls of a wrong-way driver traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes of Interstate 20.

The red pickup truck, driven by an elderly individual, was traveling on the inside shoulder near the fast lane.

Arlington police followed the truck for a few miles, driving on the correct side of Interstate 20, but keeping a close eye on the driver.

Just as the driver approached the Interstate 20 and Mountain Creek Parkway corridor, an Arlington police officer drove off road through the inside median and was able to catch up with the vehicle.

Police were eventually able to stop the vehicle, but made no arrest.
