Police said excessive speed doesn’t appear to be a factor, and it is not uncommon to see drivers travel the wrong way on Dayton’s one-way streets.

“With going the wrong way, there is no traffic device to tell you that you should be slowing down for a red light,” Lt. James Mullins said. 

I’m sure the person was driving normal speeds and had the collision.” 

The intersection was reopened by police around 11:30 a.m.
