A woman in Cumbria may face a charge for dangerous driving after travelling four miles in the wrong direction on the M6. The 82-year-old was driving between Carlisle and Windermere, but took a wrong turn and entered the northbound M6 carriageway whilst travelling south. Drivers swerved to avoid the silver Peugeot, which was doing between 60mph and 70 mph into traffic travelling the opposite direction in the fast lane. One driver was lucky to avoid serious injury after crashing into the central reservation to avoid a head-on collision. The woman stopped as soon as she saw the police car's flashing blue lights – but obviously thought nothing of the cars that span, and occasionally crashed to avoid her.
