Erratic driver transported to hospital

Jul 5, 2013 - From staff reports

Several motorists called law enforcement about an erratic driver Tuesday on Wyoming Highway 789 near Hudson.

Officials said the driver later was transported to Riverton Memorial Hospital by ambulance to be treated for medical complications due to diabetes.

According to reports, the woman was driving a gray Chevy Malibu when she "almost ran two people off the road" at about 9:15 a.m. At about 9:20 a.m., she reportedly "almost caused another accident," swerving toward the highway's barrow ditch and traveling at about 80 mph.

A second person called at about 9:25 a.m. to report that the same car was entering the oncoming lane while other vehicles approached.
