Wrong way driver dies in accident, closes interstate for hours
The sheriff's office says the accident happened shortly after 8 p.m. on Friday when a car entered the eastbound lanes traveling in the opposite direction and causing an accident.
A number of cars pulled over with drivers getting out to help-- leading to a total eastbound closure and over two mile backup. All lanes did not reopen until almost 1 a.m. Saturday.
Officials have not commented on any other injuries.
