A Farmingdale man was arrested on DWI charges early Sunday after driving the wrong way on Route 109 and colliding with another car, Suffolk County police said.
As most cars swerved to avoid him, Jayson Tyree, 27, was driving a 2001 Volvo against traffic on the eastbound lanes of Route 109, west of Wellwood Avenue, about 2:50 a.m., when it collided with a 2012 Nissan near 1144 Rte. 109, police said.
