A wrong-way driver stopped early Wednesday morning has been taken into custody for impairment.

Arizona Department of Public Safety officials say the driver was spotted on near I-10 and Pecos Road. Troopers made contact with the driver, who self-corrected, along Loop 202 near McClintock Drive.

The driver was reportedly taken into custody, suspected of impairment.

DPS identified the driver as 34-year-old Mark Saul Rock of Scottsdale.

No collision occurred during this wrong-way incident, but it comes just a day after a wrong-way driver caused a crash on I-17 in north Phoenix. In that case, the wrong-way driver was left in critical condition, and also suspected of impairment.
