A 33-year-old Plainfield man reportedly drove the wrong way on Interstate 355 in Downers Grove early Sunday and crashed head-on into another car.
Marco Alegria was driving a Dodge Caravan south in the northbound lanes of I-355 near mile marker 22.25 about 5:20 a.m. Sunday when he hit a Mitsubishi Galant head-on, according to a news release from the Illinois State Police.
The impact caused the Mitsubishi to strike the center median wall, and the 31-year-old woman who was driving the car was hospitalized.
Downers Grove fire crews also took Alegria to an area hospital.
Both drivers remained hospitalized Sunday.
Alegria was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.
