State police say that Adam Richard was driving west on Route 85 when he crossed into oncoming traffic. It is unclear at this time what caused him to veer from his side of the road.
The Route 85 connector and the ramps from 495 north and 290 east onto Route 85 were closed for nearly three hours after the accident.
