DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A woman has been charged with intoxicated assault with a vehicle after police say she drove the wrong way in the 400 block of the N. Central Expressway Saturday night and hit another driver.

Police say Hallie Young, 36, was driving a blue Lexus northbound on the southbound lanes of the expressway around 10:25 p.m. Saturday.

Young’s car collided with a silver Dodge Charger, sending the other driver to Baylor Hospital for serious bodily injury.

The Dodge Charger’s driver has been identified at Erica Davidson, and her current condition is unknown.

Young also went to the hospital following the crash, but was booked into Lew Sterrett Jail around 10 a.m. Sunday.

A bond amount has yet to be set.

A criminal background search of Dallas County records shows that Young was arrested for driving while intoxicated on Oct. 17, 2009.

However, the charged was dismissed on Nov. 5, 2010 for the lack of a witness.
