AN elderly man from Looe had a lucky escape after he drove the wrong way down a dual carriageway for ten minutes – in the dark.
The confused driver was seen in his Vauxhall Astra southbound on the A38 northbound carriageway while trying to head towards his home in the resort.
Devon and Cornwall Police said the vulnerable driver had been travelling along the 70mph road for about ten minutes before he stopped the car just after 9.30pm on Monday night. Officers attended the scene.
"There's no suggestion this chap had been drinking or anything like that, he seemed a little confused."
