Jeff Lees, the coroner for Cambria County, has identified the person who was driving the wrong way and was killed in an accident that occurred on Route 219 on Wednesday evening. The accident was caused by a vehicle who was traveling in the wrong direction. According to Lees, Ricky Baxter, 63 years old, a resident of South Fork Borough, was confirmed deceased at the scene at 8:55 p.m. He was a resident of South Fork Borough.
