For several months the North Texas Tollway Authority has been taking many steps to alleviate the problem of wrong-way drivers along the tollway.
Early Tuesday morning, another wrong-way car crash occurred on the Dallas North Tollway southbound lanes, just south of Mockingbird Lane.
According to police reports, a 2013 Honda Accord entered onto the tollway travelling in the wrong direction. Despite numerous warnings, the driver, 25-year-old Hae J. Lee of Carrollton, headed north in the southbound lanes. That is when an oncoming driver in a 2011 Nissan Rouge plowed Lee’s vehicle head-on at the Bordeaux crossover.
The driver of the Nissan Rouge was identified as Sandra Cozma, 31, of Mansfield. Both drivers were taken to Parkland Hospital in Dallas and are expected to be fine.
Both Lee and Cozma will be charged with driving while intoxicated.
The tollway was shut down at Mockingbird Lane for more than an hour as troopers investigated the crash.
