    Concerned drivers alerted local police that an SUV was driving on north on I-95 in the southbound lanes near mile marker 11 just after 3 a.m.

    While the troopers were responding they got more calls that the SUV was now northbound on Route 16 in the southbound lanes.

    The Dover tollbooth was alerted and held all southbound traffic. Trooper Peter Sankowich responded, was able to stop the driver, and saw multiple signs of alcohol impairment.
