Driver suspected of taking the wrong road spoke up

CLEVELAND (WJW) – Video released for FOX 8 I-Team showing another local misguided driver. We tracked down the arrested driver to find out what she was thinking.

This case happened over the weekend on the westbound 25th ramp from Interstate 71. The story behind it reveals a lot about an issue we keep coming across again and again.

Video from the Ohio State Highway Patrol shows a car improperly going downhill. At the end of the ramp, you see a soldier and a tractor driver dealing with an earlier accident.

After the driver stops, you hear a soldier say, “Signal 100 (wrong driver) is coming our way.”

The video also shows a soldier arresting Jennifer Parsons. The state patrol said she was drunk, driving the wrong way and driving with a suspended license. Her license was suspended for driving with a previous impairment.

We called Parsons and asked what she was thinking while going downhill.

“OK, it was an accident. I don’t wear glasses. What a shame. An accident. I didn’t go down the ‘la-di-dah freeway,’ she said. “I’m not drunk.”

Meanwhile, we also asked why she was behind the wheel when her license was suspended.

“Like I said, my friend had an emergency,” Parsons said.

Investigators say there is a high percentage of drivers going the wrong way due to being drunk or intoxicated.

Last week, an Ohio State Highway Patrol soldier stopped a misguided driver who was rushing right at him on I-480. The patrol said the driver was drunk.

Cleveland police believe that, last week, drugs or alcohol may have led to a driver’s fatal crash on the 22nd of East.

No charges have yet been made to a wrong-way driver last week who suffered serious injury after crashed head-on into a tractor-trailer on I-90.

Going back to the latest case, we arrived at the scene during the day and saw the sign at the top of the ramp and a short drive down, it warned motorists that might be going the wrong way.

The driver who was just arrested there told us she even started going the wrong way down that ramp during the day.

“It was really hard for me to know which way to go,” Parsons said.

She said motorists could be confused and she plans to go to court to explain.

“I was like, ‘Oh, shoot, I’m going the wrong way,’ and I tried to turn around,” Parsons said.

The charges have only just begun to move through the courts. We will monitor this.
