Two people from New Town sustained minor injuries in a wrong-way driver accident on West Forsyth Street that brought traffic to a standstill for few hours.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a 2009 Nissan Altima driven by a 33-year-old man from New Town was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of West Forsyth Street at Lavilla.
The Nissan Altima driver made a u-turn when he realized he was going the wrong way and turned into the path of a 2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette driven by 62-year-old man of Southbank.
The Altima driver and a 43-year-old male passenger from New Town sustained minor injuries and were taken to a nearby hospital by EMS.
The Oldsmobile Silhouette driver also sustained minor injuries and was transported to the hospital. All were wearing seat belts.
Police arrest reports indicate the Nissan Altima driver was driving while intoxicated.
