Spring Valley Man Charged with DWI, After Reportedly Driving Wrong Direction on NYS Thruway

A Spring Valley man is lucky to be alive and that he didn’t kill anyone else, after he allegedly drove the wrong way early Saturday morning on the New York State Thruway. Video posted to the Ramapo Police Facebook page shows the van around 4:30 Saturday morning driving south in the northbound lanes after getting on the wrong side of the highway in Airmont. He turned around and exited back in Airmont again, and then headed towards Route 59. The unidentified 41 year-old was stopped when he drove across the lawn of Ramapo Police headquarters. He was arrested and charged with DWI. He was arraigned and released without bail and is due back at the Village of Airmont Justice Court next month.
