On March 18th, at 6 pm, troopers received many complaints about a white mustang traveling erratically on eastbound I-84 near milepost 35.

At milepost 51 a Hood River County Sheriff's Deputy attempted to stop the driver of the mustang. The driver refused to pull over, and a pursuit began. The driving behavior of the mustang deteriorated even more, so the deputy ended the pursuit near milepost 60.

The driver managed to avoid two stop-stick deployments in the dangerous pursuit. The mustang then exited on 82 into the Dalles, and turned around on the off-ramp. The driver continued to traveling the wrong-way on the off-ramp toward the eastbound lanes of I-84.

Sergeant Calloway made the decision to stop the mustang by intentionally colliding with the vehicle.

Sergeant Calloway suffered minor injuries in the crash. He was treated and released from a local hospital. Meanwhile, the suspect was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The decision made by Sergeant Calloway prevented what could have been deadly for motorists traveling I-84 that day.

Calloway's crash into the mustang stopped possible future collisions that may have occurred if the driver continued onto the highway in the wrong direction.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
