COVENTRY, Vt. (WCAX) - A tractor-trailer going the wrong way on Interstate 91 scared drivers and sent Vermont troopers into action.

It happened Thursday around 2:45 p.m. on I-91 in Coventry.

Police say Javad Naqizade, 42, of Dallas, Texas, drove the wrong way in the southbound lane.

Troopers slowed the southbound traffic ahead of the truck and a detective stopped Naqizade from driving.

He was arrested on the Exit 27 southbound on-ramp.

Naqizade is due in court in August on charges of grossly negligent operation and violating interstate regulations.

Police say it appears that for some reason Naqizade left the Coventry rest area headed in the wrong direction.
