Law enforcement spent ten minutes looking for a driver going the wrong way this morning…when the driver found them.
The Topeka Police Department received reports a little after 2:10 Friday morning that a car was going the wrong way on I-70 west near Valencia Road.
Authorities took to the road… and a little after 2:20… a Capitol Police officer was hit head on by the driver.
The incident happened between 1st and fourth on I-70. The westbound lanes were closed for about 30 minutes this morning.
Only minor injuries were reported.
An investigation into why the woman was driving the wrong way is continuing.
