A Grants Pass man- 49-year old Sergey Zhura- is facing several charges after causing an accident because he was driving the wrong way. At about 5-41 a-m this morning, a van was reported driving down Interstate 5 in the wrong direction near Grants Pass.
At around milepost 63, the van sideswiped a car. His vehicle came to a stop at milepost 77. Zhura resisted arrest.
No one was injured. There was no evidence alcohol was a factor. Zhura was given a medical and mental evaluation at Three River Community Medical Center.
