CHICAGO, May 2 (UPI) — An Illinois man driving his car the wrong way on a busy highway was not only drunk, police say, but also distracted — by the text message he was busy sending.

Raymond A. Dryier, 40, faces trial on charges including drunk driving, wrong-way driving and operation of a vehicle while texting, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Sunday.

Dryier was spotted by an officer on routine patrol early Thursday.
