I’ve seen news reports of drunk drivers going the wrong way on the highway before, but I’ve never seen anything quite like this.
Driving Wrong Way On Highway For 10 Miles – Driver Arrested And Charged With DWI and Reckless Conduct
On August 14, 2019, at approximately 3:45AM, Troopers from the NH State Police Troop B Barracks in Bedford were dispatched to the report of a wrong-way driver traveling northbound in the southbound lanes of the F.E. Everett Turnpike through the town of Bedford. State Police Dispatchers fielded several emergency calls from motorists who witnessed this incident. One caller stated this vehicle even passed through the Bedford Toll Plaza in the wrong direction.
The vehicle continued traveling northbound on the wrong side of the highway and eventually entered Interstate 293 traveling into the city of Manchester. Troopers located this vehicle in the area of Exit #7 on I293 and were able to stop it. The vehicle was identified as a 2016 red Subaru Forester and it is estimated that this operator had traveled nearly ten miles on the wrong side of the highway before being stopped. The driver of this vehicle was identified as Rachel Barris (Age 22), Hollis, NH. Ms. Barris was arrested and charged with Driving While Intoxicated and Reckless Conduct. She was released on personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to be arraigned in the Manchester District Court on September 9, 2019, at 8:00AM.
Ten miles?? How do you not crash into someone after doing that drunk for 10 miles?? It’s nothing less than a miracle that no one was killed, just ask the witnesses whose lives flashed before their eyes.
Not only that, she went through the toll booth! How do you not come to your senses when you approach a toll booth and all the other cars are coming from the opposite direction? How do you not notice that the cars on the other side of the highway are traveling in the same direction as you? How is any of this even possible?
Well, according to her tweets she doesn’t remember anything.
Remember that time I got white girl wasted and almost killed a bunch of people? Lulz. Good times!
That right there is someone who clearly doesn’t understand the gravity of her crimes. And to make matters worse she tweeted out a joke about wearing a straight edge band’s shirt while getting arrested for a DUI.
Because almost killing a bunch of people is funny. Get it?
Well, the joke’s on her because the straight edge band whose shirt she was wearing (xForgiveness Deniedx) got wind of the tweets and announced that they were selling t-shirts specialty made in her honor.
Getting owned by a straight edge band. Embarrassing.
She has since shut down her social media accounts and bowed her head in shame like she should’ve done from the beginning.
