VENICE - One person is dead in an accident that has shut down all southbound lanes of Interstate 75 at mile marker 190 in Venice.  Florida Highway Patrol is on the scene, and reports that the accident happened just before 10:30 Friday morning. Alternate routes should be used as the investigation may keep all, or several, lanes closed for a time. 

SNN is en route to the scene and will have updates as they become available.
