Sloshed woman drives wrong way on Princes Freeway for 18 kilometres

A woman has been charged after she allegedly drove the wrong way on the Princes Freeway for about 18 kilometres.

A woman has been charged with drink driving after she allegedly drove on the wrong side of the Princes Freeway for approximately 18 kilometres before being intercepted by police on Monday night.

It is understood police received numerous calls from drivers on the freeway who narrowly avoided the woman as she travelled towards them between Little River and Werribee before she was intercepted near Duncans Road at 10.20pm.

The driver, a 23-year-old woman, was breath tested at the Werribee Police Station where she returned a .177 per cent reading and was subsequently charged with drink driving, conduct endangering life, dangerous driving and a number of other traffic offences.

The woman’s licence was immediately suspended and her car, a Holden Barina, was impounded at a cost of $1006.10 for a period of one month. She has been bailed to appear at the Werribee Magistrates’ Court on 19 December 2018.
