Just after 12:30 a.m., Corpus Christi Police were called to the area of Buddy Lawrence and IH-37 for a wrong way driver.

A witness said they saw a red car going southbound in the northbound lanes.

When they arrived, police found that the suspected wrong way driver had driven their vehicle off of the embankment between lanes, and off the interstate.

The two occupants, a male and a female, were both in their early 20’s.

Police believe that alcohol may have played a factor.

The driver and passenger suffered minor injuries, but nothing life threatening.

No word yet on exactly what charges they’ll be facing.
