HANOVER, N.Y. (AP) - State police say a woman from Ohio was under the influence of drugs when she drove the wrong way on the Thruway in western New York.

Officials say troopers spotted a car traveling west in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 90 around 7:20 p.m. Tuesday in the Chautauqua (shuh-TAW’-kwuh) County town of Hanover, 30 miles southwest of Buffalo.

Police say troopers were able to catch up to the car after the driver of a tractor-trailer blocked all the eastbound lanes to prevent any accidents.

Troopers say they charged 44-year-old Michelle Weaver of Painesville, Ohio, with driving while ability impaired by drugs and reckless endangerment.

Police say Weaver was turned over to a sober third party and released. It couldn’t be determined if she has a lawyer.
