Florida wrong way driver caught on camera

COLLIER COUNTY, Florida — Troopers are sharing a video of a wrong way driver on Interstate 75 to highlight the dangers of impaired driving.

Florida Highway Patrol's Lt. Greg Bueno shared the video on Twitter Thursday.

The video, recorded early Tuesday morning along Alligator Alley, shows a car speed by driving the wrong direction.  The trooper immediately turned around and crossed the median to follow the driver.

Shortly after, the trooper sees the wrong way driver making a U-turn, and the trooper crosses the median again to pull the driver over.

Lt. Bueno urges drivers to report impaired drivers by calling *FHP on their cell phone.
