Posted By Thomas V. Wallin || 18-May-2011

An Aptos taxi cab driver has been arrested for driving under the influence and a hit-and-run after going wrong-way on Highway 1.

According to KSBW, Sharek got onto the State Park Drive off ramp and entered the highway going against traffic at around 1:55pm.   Two vehicles, a   2001 Chevy Suburban driven by a 47-year-old woman and a 1994 Toyota Avalon driven by a 57-year-old Aptos woman, veered sharply to avoid hitting Sharek but ended up colliding with each other.  A witness has been quoted saying that Sharek was "not in the right state of mind".   After the collision, Sharek took off and exited the highway and was later arrested for a California DUI at his home in Santa Cruz at 6pm.
