The driver, identified as Robert Howe, 43, of Springfield, Mass., told Officer Senick that he was not from the area and was following the GPS on his phone, which led him to drive the wrong way on I-84, police said.
Howe’s blood alcohol concentration was found to be .101 and .095, according to police.
