On January 3, 2015 at approximately 3:00 a.m., HCSO was notified of a blue Toyota four-door vehicle traveling northbound in the southbound lanes of the Veteran's Expressway. Several units responded to the area in an attempt to locate the vehicle, while others entered the southbound lanes of travel to stop traffic. Corporal Jeremy Davis observed the vehicle traveling northbound in the southbound lanes approximately 3/4 of a mile south of Van Dyke Rd. Corporal Davis was in the northbound lanes, traveling northbound and paralleling the vehicle. Corporal Davis activated his emergency equipment and entered the median alongside the suspect vehicle, who immediately stopped. After making contact with the driver, Filomelia Crysell Lucero, it was determined she was not under the influence of any alcoholic beverages, but was confused. The driver was cited for No Valid Driver's License and Driving the Wrong Way on a Divided Highway.
