VENANGO CO., Pa. (EYT) – State Police say a one vehicle accident occurred Wednesday night on Interstate 80 West, in Scrubgrass Township, Venango County.

According to Franklin-based State Police, around 7:31 p.m. on August 9, 51-year-old Kristina M. Knepp, of Summerville, was traveling east on I-80 approaching the exit of Emlenton Borough in a 2013 GMC Yukon SLT.
