Ask a Trooper

Question: With some recent wrong way head-on crashes in the area, can you provide some tips on what to do if you see another vehicle coming at you in your lane?
Answer: When we receive a call that a vehicle is traveling the wrong way, we treat this as an emergency and respond to the area as quickly as possible. Our goal is to get the vehicle stopped before a crash occurs. I have investigated far too many head-on crashes where occupants have lost their lives or were seriously injured due to a vehicle going the wrong way.
