Columbus police on Wednesday released dashcam video of officers stopping a woman driving a car the wrong way early Tuesday morning on Route 315 on the Northwest Side, averting a potential crash.
Deja Marie Moore, 26, of Worthington, was charged with operating a vehicle while impaired, Columbus police said.
The woman was spotted just after 1 a.m. driving the sedan north in the southbound lane of Route 315 near Henderson Road.
The dashcam video from a Columbus police freeway officer who used his vehicle and the median to help block her forward movement shows that there are cars that have pulled over to the side and the woman driving the sedan is swerving. She even can be seen talking on a cell phone.
The woman attempts to maneuver around the front block, but a Columbus police van then pulls next to her on the driver’s side to box her in.
A Columbus police officer then pulls the woman out of the front seat of her car and takes her into custody. https://www.dispatch.com/news/20190313/dashcam-video-shows-police-stopping-wrong-way-driver-on-route-315
