A motorist who drove north in the southbound lanes of Interstate 55 caused one wreck and was involved in another Tuesday night, police said.

According to police, the driver caused a two-car accident in the southbound lanes of the interstate near the Reavis Barracks exit. Three lanes of the highway were closed as a result but have since re-opened.

The driver then kept going and wrecked between the Gasconade and Potomac exits. Three southbound lanes were also briefly closed near Potomac.

The unidentified driver was arrested after the second crash. Authorities have not said what charges the driver will face.
