Police Say Woman Drove Drunk the Wrong Way for 14 Miles on I-78
State Police have charged a Lebanon County woman for driving drunk the wrong way on Interstate 78 in Berks County late last month.
According to information released by the State Police barracks in Hamburg, 24-year-old Sierra Dreibelbis, of Fredericksburg, faces a drunk driving and reckless endangerment charge following the incident that happened back on Nov. 29.
Police say that soon after 3 a.m. that day, they were notified of a vehicle traveling east in the westbound lanes of I-78 in Bethel Township.
They add that Dreibelbis drove in the opposite direction of traffic from Mile Markers 10.4 to 24.5. Police finally caught up to Dreibelbis after her 14-mile misadventure and determined she was drunk. They were able to stop the wrong-way trip safely with no injuries reported.
A preliminary hearing has not been scheduled related to this incident. A court records search shows that no charges have been filed as of Dec. 9.
