MANCHESTER — State police in New Hampshire say a 22-year-old woman is facing multiple charges after she allegedly drove the wrong way for 10 miles on a state highway, even going through a toll plaza in the wrong direction.

The incident was first reported about 3:45 a.m. Wednesday.

Police said the vehicle driven by Rachel Barris, of Hollis, N.H., traveled northbound on the wrong side of F.E. Everett Turnpike. She entered Interstate 293 before eventually going into Manchester. Along the way, Barris passed the wrong way through the Bedford toll plaza, according to reports.

Troopers stopped the vehicle near Exit 7 on Interstate 293.

Police said Barris was charged with driving while intoxicated and reckless conduct. She’s due in court next month.

It could not be determined if she has an attorney. There was no phone listing for Barris.
