Police in Erie County have identified the man who died in a two-vehicle crash Saturday night near the casino in the Erie area as 76 year-old Albert Metheney, from Meadville.

Accident investigators say Metheney was traveling south on Route 97 when he traveled into the opposite lane of traffic and into the path of an oncoming vehicle.  The impact of the collision propelled Metheney’s car down an embankment, into the parking lot of the Presque Isle Downs and Casino facility, and up against a pole.

The driver of the other vehicle, identified as 36 year-old Keith Schultz, from Waterford, was not injured.
