WARRICK CO., Ill. - Late last night (Saturday, July 6) at approximately 11:25, Indiana State Police received information that a 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of I-64 from the 40 mile-marker, which is east of Lynnville.

Troopers Boeckman and Hurley immediately responded to the area to locate the vehicle.

At approximately 11:30, Trooper Hurley had his emergency lights and siren activated on his patrol car near the 35 mile-marker, but the driver refused to stop and continued westbound in the eastbound lanes. Approximately one minute later, Trooper Boeckman drove his fully marked patrol car into the eastbound lanes near the 33 mile-marker to warn eastbound motorists and to attempt to stop the wrong way driver.
