Head on crash stops wrong way driver

Head on accident

Law enforcement  spent ten minutes looking for a driver going the wrong way this morning…when the driver found them.

The Topeka Police Department received reports a little after 2:10 Friday morning  that a car was going the wrong way on I-70 west near Valencia Road.
Authorities took to the road… and a little after 2:20… a Capitol Police officer was hit head on by the driver.

The incident happened between 1st and fourth on I-70.  The westbound lanes were closed for about 30 minutes this morning.

Only minor injuries were reported.

An investigation into why the woman was driving the wrong way is continuing.
