Police had to shut down a major highway to stop a car traveling in the wrong direction between Mount Horeb and Verona Thursday evening.

Officers on the scene determined the driver had a medical issue and released them following treatment at the Upland Hills Health facility.

Three separate police departments coordinated on the call, with a Dodgeville officer diverting eastbound traffic on Highway 18-151 for a few minutes while Mount Horeb and Iowa County officers used spike strips to stop the car at approximately 5:30 p.m.
