WRONG WAY DRIVER HIT 18-WHEELER ON US 59

Just before 2am Saturday a Cleveland Officer spotted a green Dodge pickup going southbound in the northbound lanes of US 59 in Cleveland. As it was broadcast multiple units converged on the freeway searching for it. Within minutes it was located, however, it had crashed. An 18-wheeler driver going from Houston to Memphis was northbound and about to pass another truck on the freeway. As they topped the overpass at Washington Ave the pickup was coming directly at him. He attempted evasive action but the pickup struck the side of his truck. The pickup ripped three tires and rims of the 18-wheeler and just missed the 200-gallon fuel tank.  Her truck then lost the right front wheel as it continued over 100 yards still southbound in the northbound lanes going head-on at traffic. The female driver was transported with minor injuries. The truck driver was not injured. The pickup displayed Tennessee license plates but the female told officers she was heading home and the 18-wheelers were on the wrong side of the road and hit her. Officers confiscated several bottles of pills from her truck. US 59 was closed for about an hour to clean up.
