A fatal crash on the Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Montgomery County shuts down northbound lanes for several hours.

Two vehicles were reported to be involved in the accident which occurred just before 4:30 p.m. Wednesday in the northbound lanes at mile marker 26 in Worchester Township between the Mid-County exit and Lansdale.

One person died in the crash and at least one other injured.

The southbound lanes were briefly closed to allow medical helicopters to land, but re-opened shortly after.

However, the northbound lanes remained closed for several hours for accident cleanup and the police investigation.
