Raleigh, NC -- It could have been a disaster -- an elderly woman driving to a doctor's appointment goes the wrong way on the interstate. And she kept driving for 14 miles! Deputies had to form a rolling roadblock to get 80-year-old Margaret Riley to stop. During the entire trip, other drivers weaved and honked, but managed to steer clear. She pulled over when she saw all the police lights. 911 operators took more than 70 calls about Riley from drivers on the interstate. Police did not ticket Riley, but her driver’s license is being re-evaluated.
