HENDERSON (FOX5) -- The Henderson Police Department was investigating Friday night after a wrong-way crash at Marks Street and Sandhurst Road.

Police said two vehicles, one of which was traveling the wrong direction, were involved in the collision about 7:54 p.m.

A 75-year-old woman was transported in critical condition to Sunrise Hospital. A man in his 40s sustained minor injuries and was not transported.

The preliminary investigation indicates alcohol was a factor in the crash, police said.

Marks was closed in both directions and was expected to remain closed for two to three hours. Police are asking motorists to avoid the area.

Let me guess...

The 40-something man was the one driving (impaired, of course) in the wrong lane before he took out the poor senior woman? Since he wasn't transported to the hospital, let's all hope he was transported somewhere else.

No actually the 75 year old woman was driving on the wrong side of the road for quit some time, and actually the 2 witnesses had to follow her because they knew something was going to happen and sure enough it did, to my family. The older woman was at fault.

Wow. Thank you for the update, and I'm sorry for your family member(s). The story mentioned impairment. Assuming she recovers, Is she being arrested?
