A 56-year-old-man from Newport News, Virginia was recently arrested after causing several automobile accidents while travelling the wrong way on Interstate 664 in Suffolk, Virginia. Prior to his arrest, two Virginia State Police Troopers tried several times to stop and block the driver, but rather than stop, the driver struck the Virginia State Police cars, as well as several other automobiles, causing injuries. The Virginia Troopers eventually stopped the driver’s vehicle at Jefferson Avenue and Dresden Drive in Newport News, Virginia. The driver was charged with driving under the influence, reckless driving, eluding, damage to property and felony hit and run.
