Skyway wrong way

The OPP has released a video of a car driving the wrong way on the Burlington Skyway.

The incident was captured on the police cruiser’s dash cam around 2:30 a.m. on March 3. The officer is seen driving toward a bright light on the horizon of the bridge before a Nissan SUV comes into view near the centre meridian.

The SUV comes to a stop right in front of the cruiser. On the cop’s right side, a police SUV pulls slightly ahead of the cruiser, boxing the Nissan against the meridian. This officer exits the car and approaches the Nissan driver. The video ends as two more officers approach the car and before the driver exits the Nissan.

Ultimately, a 38-year-old Hamilton woman was charged with impaired driving, driving with a BAC over 80, possession of open liquor in the car, dangerous driving and drug possession. The OPP did not identify the woman.
