    PD: Wrong-Way Drunk Driver Causes Highway Crash

    Massachusetts State Police have arrested a man they allege was under the influence of alcohol and drugs when he drove the wrong way on two highways and caused an accident. 

    Police say 24-year-old Ahmed Ziad, of Norwell, was stopped just after midnight Friday on a highway off-ramp in Wellesley. He faces arraignment later Friday. 

    Troopers first received a report of a car driving north in the southbound lanes of Interstate 95 in the Norwood-Walpole area at about 11:30 p.m. Thursday. 

    Minutes later, a driver crashed into a guardrail trying to avoid a wrong-way vehicle. 

    Police later received a report of a wrong-way driver on I-93. The driver at some point corrected his direction. 

    Five people died in a crash caused by a wrong-way driver on I-495 in Middleborough in October.
