Wrong Way Drunk Driver On I-90 Strikes Vehicle – Held On $25,000 Bond
55 year-old Terry Jones has been placed in the Missoula County Jail on $25,000 bond after allegedly driving drunk the wrong way on I-90, causing several drivers to run off the road, and striking a vehicle before being arrested.
She was charged with felony criminal endangerment, DUI, and failure to provide notice of the quickest means in an accident.
At her Missoula Justice Court appearance on Monday, Deputy County Attorney Amber Henning related the circumstances of Jones' arrest to Judge Marie Anderson.
"The defendant is alleged to have driven the wrong way on I-90 for approximately nine miles," Henning said. "She collided with one driver and nearly hit many others, as well. The arresting trooper noted that she appeared highly intoxicated and had an open wine box in her car. We're very concerned about the number of people that she nearly ran into, and we believe that warrants a large bail amount. This is her second criminal endangerment charge."
Judge Anderson sat bail at $25.000 and ordered Jones to undergo alcohol monitoring.
