Woman accused of driving wrong way while intoxicated

A woman in Oklahoma was accused of driving drunk after police found her stopped along the shoulder of an expressway at around 4 a.m. on Dec. 28. Before the woman was detained, police had received several reports about a wrong-way driver on the Broken Arrow Expressway. The 44-year-old woman's car was allegedly found pointing in the opposite direction of traffic beside the westbound lanes.

According to police, the accused woman's Toyota Camry had become disabled after hitting something along the expressway. When police approached the vehicle, they noticed that it had damage that included a flat tire. According to reports, an officer suspected that the woman had been driving under the influence of alcohol after noticing that her speech was slurred and she smelled like alcohol.

In a police report, authorities alleged that the woman was unaware she had been traveling the wrong way on the expressway. Police also noted that the woman was not wearing any shoes and could not find her shoes in her car. The woman apparently admitted that she had recently left a bar and was attempting to drive back to her house in Broken Arrow. Police took the woman into custody and charged her for driving under the influence.

A person who has been accused of driving drunk after an incident like this may want to seek representation from a criminal defense attorney. If there is little physical evidence of intoxication, an attorney might argue that the accused driver was disoriented right after getting into an accident.
