07/15/12 195 W - + 4 - 2 Wrong-Way Vehicle Accidents

Two people were killed this morning on Interstate 40, victims of another wrong-way vehicle accident. We've seen a couple of these in the last month. How many, when and where? From Google, here's the most recent and most serious. Seems the wee hours on the weekend are the deadliest, at least ancedote-ally speaking. Maybe we have accident-researching readers who paint a more complete picture:

I think there was a wrong way crash on 540 between Leesville and Creedmoor Rd in 2006 maybe 2007. DHFD has the news clips of the accident
