They said the driver of the service truck was able to get her keys and waited for troopers to arrive.

After an investigation, DPS said she was suspected of impairment and placed under arrest for DUI.

The wrong-way driver had a 3-year-old child in her car who was turned over to the biological father. 

The driver’s identity has yet to be released. 

She is being charged with aggravated DUI and aggravated DUI with a passenger under 15-years-old.

DPS said she was not booked due to a recent medical procedure and open surgical wound.
