— A fatal accident shut down part of I-85 north Monday morning.

The interstate is closed from Roxboro Road to Highway 70, following a 3 a.m. accident.

Durham police say only one vehicle -- a van from out-of-state -- was involved but one person was killed and at least nine people were badly hurt, including small children. The crash victims were taken to local hospitals.

Investigators have not released identities of those involved, nor the cause of the accident.
