CINCINNATI – Four people were injured Thursday night after a woman drove the wrong way on Interstate 75 and slammed into an oncoming vehicle.
The crash happened at about 10:15 p.m. on southbound I-75 at the 0.5-mile marker, according to officers.
Police say Andrea Collett, 48, was driving north on the southbound lanes of I-75 in a 1998 Honda CRV when she struck a 1999 Mazda 626 head-on.
Collett was trapped inside her car and was extricated by fire crews. She was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center with life-threatening injuries and is listed in critical condition.
The driver of the Mazda, Gilberto Macario-Temaj, 28, and his front seat passenger, Areli Pablo, 27, sustained minor injuries. Both were taken to UCMC where they were treated and released.
The backseat passenger, Gilberto Pablo, 33, sustained serious injuries and is listed in stable condition at UCMC.
