An 89-year-old man is in serious condition after he wound up driving the wrong way on Interstate 72 near Springfield, leading to a three-car crash that also sent another driver to the hospital.
State police say William Parrish turned onto the wrong ramp off of MacArthur Boulevard, and wound up traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes of the interstate.
An approaching westbound driver was unable to avoid him and struck him head-on.
A third vehicle then became tangled up in that wreckage. The second driver was treated and released… the third driver was not injured.
