The driver of a car that traveled the wrong way on the Blatnik Bridge Thursday night and crashed head-on into an oncoming car is facing drunken driving charges.

Donald J. Robertson, 78, of Duluth was driving toward Duluth in the Superior-bound lane about 9 p.m. when, midway on the bridge, his car struck an oncoming car driven by Ashley M. Clement, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

Neither Robertson nor Clement, 25, of Duluth, suffered apparent injuries, State Patrol reports show. Tests determined Robertson was under the influence, the State Patrol said.
