February 13, 2014 - One person is dead after an accident tonight on I-79 north of the Edinboro exit.

PSP from Girard were called to the scene around 9:20 tonight.

They have identified the victim as 50 year old Mohammed Elkady of Meadville.

Reports from the scene indicate the vehicle is a van and appeared to have gone over the embankment.

State police tell us one lane of I-79 southbound remains closed at this hour near the 169 mile marker, again, that's just north of the Edinboro exit.
