An elderly Wiregrass resident is reportedly in critical condition after a two-vehicle wreck on a recently opened road in Coffee County.
Authorities say the woman driving the car was reportedly going the wrong way.
The unnamed driver was heading east in the westbound lanes of the Highway 84 Bypass in New Brockton.
A westbound SUV attempted to avoid the collision and wound-up going across the opposite lanes of traffic before crashing into a ditch.
The female driver of that vehicle reportedly received only minor injuries.
The accident remains under investigation by Alabama State Troopers.
