March 29, 2012

An elderly Yuma driver disrupted traffic on an Oregon freeway for nearly half an hour Wednesday afternoon. Oregon State police say the motorist drove the wrong way on Hiway 97 north of Klamath Falls forcing more than a dozen cars off the road.

Troopers with lights and sirens blaring followed the motor home for several miles before the driver noticed. Officers believe the man may have suffered a stroke. No charges were filed because of his medical condition.
