Wrong-Way Driver Busted On I-94

A Chicago man is facing a variety of charges after he was busted driving the wrong way on I-94 early Wednesday in Chikaming Township. The Berrien County Sheriff’s Department says it got a complaint around 3 a.m. of a vehicle going the wrong way on I-94 in the westbound lanes. The vehicle was also speeding. Police tried to pull it over near Lakeside Road, but it didn’t stop and crossed the median, now going east in the eastbound lanes. As police gave chase, the driver tried to cross again into the westbound lanes, but his vehicle was hit by a semi. The driver, 25-year-old Diego Flores-Valero of Chicago, struggled with police as they arrested him, but he was brought into custody. He was taken to Spectrum Health Lakeland for observation. I-94 in the area was closed while the scene was cleaned up.
