State Police Arrest Wrong-Way Driver in Bourne

Kevin Palmer of Plymouth will be arraigned in Falmouth District Court on Monday.

Just past midnight last night, State Police from the Norwell and Bourne barracks responded to reports of a wrong-way operator on Route 3 in Plymouth, which resulted in the arrest of the operator in Bourne.

Preliminary investigation by Trooper Katherine Mungovan indicates that KEVIN PALMER, 26, of Plymouth was traveling southbound on Route 3 in the northbound travel lanes in the area of exit seven in a 2009 Nissan Sentra. As the vehicle traveled in the area of exit 6, it struck a vehicle which was traveling northbound, damaging that vehicle but causing no injuries.

Troopers shut down northbound traffic while they continued to attempt to stop the vehicle. They successfully deployed a tire deflation device just prior to the Sagamore bridge, causing two of the tires to deflate. PALMER eventually brought his vehicle to a stop in the middle of the roadway. He was subsequently placed under arrest on the following charges:

1. OUI Liquor
2. Reckless Operation of a Motor Vehicle
3. Improper Operation of a Motor Vehicle
4. Failure to Stop for a Police Officer
5. Speeding

PALMER was booked at the State Police barracks in Bourne and subsequently released on bail.
