Motorist courts disaster by driving wrong way over Irish Motorway Bridge

Police are investigating after a driver nearly caused a major accident by driving the wrong way into the path of oncoming vehicles on a busy motorway bridge.
The incident happened in driving rain on the Foyle Bridge in Co Derry. It was daytime but the sky was dark and overcast, and cars all had their lights on.

The dual carriageway bridge was heavy with traffic when vehicles had to lurch to a halt to avoid a red car coming the wrong way towards them.
The driver didn’t stop or attempt to turn around but drove straight through the middles of the two lanes of traffic.
