Wrong-Way Driver Causes Crash on Interstate 380

COOLBAUGH TOWNSHIP -- A wrong-way driver is getting the blame for a crash in Monroe County.

Troopers say Sam Pontillo was going south in the north lanes on Interstate 380 north near Tobyhanna just before 1 a.m. on Monday.

The driver from Tobyhanna was rushed to the hospital after slamming into another car.

The other driver wasn't badly hurt.

State police suspect alcohol may have played a part in that wrong way crash in Monroe County.

        If they made this offense a capital punishment we could ensure the morons would NEVER do it again. Save a lot of lives and reduce the cretin population!

    What, you mean this was not caused by an elderly driver??? I thought they were the cause of all these wrong way drivers causing accidents. Where is the rage?? where are the shouts of having him tested or automatically pulling their licence???

      I missed the resolution to the last one. Do you remember the one I’m referring to? It was an old lady who caused a couple of fender-benders as people got out of her way. Then she ended up making a 3-point turn and going the right way. Last I heard they identified the car but didn’t hear if they made any arrests or issued any fines.
