Here is the reason you need to have two hands on the wheel and two eyes on the road at all times. A motorist who was doing just that was able to avoid a head-on crash when another driver came straight at him June 5 on Hwy. 59 near Detroit Lakes.
A State Trooper was stopped on the shoulder questioning a driver about tabs on his boat when the driver of a white car heading the wrong way came within inches of colliding with a motorist heading in the opposite direction. A second car was able to swerve and avoid a rear-end crash.
The trooper immediately gave chase and stopped the wrong-way driver a short time later. The male driver of the white sedan had just turned from a four-lane highway onto this two-lane road and drove into oncoming traffic. The man told the trooper he thought the other vehicle was to blame for the near head-on collision. The driver was cited for failure to keep right/over the center line.
