Brandy Lynn Collins was arrested for second-degree felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after she reportedly entered Interstate 20 going the wrong way just five days after her 36th birthday.
Merkel Police Chief Bill Wheat says they believe she intentionally entered the freeway going the wrong direction.
Miraculously, she was not injured and was released from Hendrick Medical Center the same day.
She was also charged with the misdemeanors of entry to controlled access highway at unapproved point, and driving the wrong way on a one-way street.
She was released from the Taylor County Jail Tuesday on bonds totaling $10,280.
