A Dallas motorcycle rider was critically injured in a Texas traffic accident when he was struck head on by what appears to be a drunk driver traveling the wrong way on a divided highway.
According to a local Fox News affiliate and Dallas Police, the car vs motorcycle accident took place in the Fair Park neighborhood at a few minutes after one in the morning on Thursday. A man driving a mid-sized sedan was driving south in the northbound lanes of Robert B. Cullum Boulevard, a six-lane divided highway.
Near the intersection of Grand Junction, the wrong way driver crashed head-on with a motorcycle traveling north in the left lane. The motorcycle rider was seriously injured and rushed by ambulance to a nearby hospital. The driver was given a field sobriety test and then taken to the station.
Police are still investigating the apparent wrong way drunk driving accident, though they say that the man will likely face a charge of intoxication assault. They are also seeking any other information on the driver an vehicle, as the damaged car seemed to have been involved in another different traffic accident earlier in the night.
