MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A video is going viral on social media, and this time not for the right reasons.
A woman, who appears to be in her 70s or 80s, was seen driving a mobility scooter onto a dangerous Memphis highway Friday evening around 7 p.m. The terrifying incident was recorded live on Facebook.
Towanna Murphy posted the video on Facebook Live. You can watch it below:
The video was being filmed as a cry for help. Facebook user, Towanna Murphy, asked her friends to please share the information with police as she followed the woman onto Interstate-55.
"Whoever is watching this video, please call 9-1-1, so we can get this lady where she's going," said Murphy.
The video ended with a Memphis police officer working to assist the woman off of the scooter, but she refused to comply.
We reached out to police regarding the video. They told us the woman is now safe and with officers.
