I can relate to this accident personally...I had to call my mom to take me to the hospital one evening about a year ago. She is 71. She almost drove down the SAME ramp onto highway 55 towards oncoming traffic until I yelled "Mom no that is the wrong way" she said she was so nervous to get me to the hospital that she wasn't paying attention and it was also dark out. I went through the intersection yesterday to see how this poor woman got confused and you could make a mistake and get on the ramp the wrong way very easily if you are not paying attention to the "Wrong Way" signs and in a daze and just drive. I am just glad that I was fortunate enough to stop my mom from doing the same thing.

Oh shut up not a one of you have done wrong right? How many of you have gotten a ticket for making a mistake while driving. Every time you get behind the wheel there is a chance something might go wrong. There are people of all ages that drive and make the wrong decissions from time to time. You all need to get a life instead of getting on here just to bash someone for something. Take a close look in t he mirror and tell me you are perfict. You can't so cut the lady some slack.
You suck@!

maybe they should look at the layout of the intersection
it has happened more than once it sounds like so it is likely to happen again

I guess they're building them with combined lanes now to save money, but the layout of the entire intersection is confusing, whether you are 90 or 20.

For the old folks who have been driving most of their lives with divided lanes and clearly marked entrance/exit ramps, you CAN see how they'd be confused under the best circumstances.

You know, I would have to agree, there have been a couple of uh-oh moments at that intersection and the one from Richardson onto 55 Northbound. It looks like those turning left onto Vogel are going to run right into you!
