The northbound Lodge is back open following a fatal accident.

Two vehicles were involved in the accident - a Dodge Charger and a white mini van.

Witnesses saw two people running from the scene following the crash. One of those people is in custody. Police are believed to be searching for the second person.

Witnesses say the accident may have happened because someone was trying to adjust a mattress on top of a parked vehicle on the side of the road and that person is the one who was hit and killed.

Police have not released any information on the victim.
