Wrong-way driver on Champlain Bridge

A wrong-way driver crossed the Champlain Bridge around 3:30 this morning.

Police say the driver boarded the wrong side of Autoroute 10 at Highway 30 and headed toward Montreal. As he approached the bridge, a horrified driver who spotted him whipped out a cellphone and alerted police.

The wrong-way driver made it across the span, perhaps startling oncoming motorists but without causing any accidents.

A patrol car caught up on the Montreal side of the bridge.

A 49-year old man is under arrest, facing charges of impaired driving and dangerous driving.
