All lanes of Rt. 219 North were closed and traffic was forced to exit at Rt. 179 (Milestrip Rd) because of a multi-vehicle accident.

Police say a car collided with a deer and that led to the multi-vehicle accident around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday. It's unclear how many vehicles were involved or if there were any injuries.

Crews responded and had the fire out in about 20 minutes, but it took another half hour for the road to re-open.
