On September 29, 2020 at approximately 8:41 a.m., New York State Police at Endwell responded to a report of a wrong-way driver on State Highway 17 east between exits 71 and 72 in the city of Binghamton. 

A trooper was in the area when Broome County 911 received numerous calls of a vehicle traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes on 17 and sideswiped a tractor trailer.  An investigation revealed that an 86-year-old woman was traveling the wrong way in the passing lane directly into the path of a tractor trailer who took evasive action but was unable to completely miss the vehicle. 

No injuries were reported.  The accident remains under investigation.
