Bernalillo County Sheriff's deputies say an accused wrong-way drunk driver who caused a serious crash didn't even remember getting behind the wheel.
Deputies say Javier Cortiz Aguilar was driving the wrong way on Interstate-40 near Carnuel when he slammed into Claudia Garcia-Juarez Thursday.
Garcia- Juarez was taken to the hospital, and remains there as she's treated for serious injuries.
Deputies say Cortiz-Aguilar admitted to drinking that night.
A background check showed he does not have a driver's license, deputies say.
