FRANKLIN, Tenn. -

A driver was killed in a crash Wednesday afternoon that had the exit ramp from Interstate 65 North to Cool Springs Boulevard East shutdown for several hours.

The accident happened just after 3 p.m.

According to Franklin police, Chad Scism, 34, of Thompson's Station, lost control of his vehicle, left the roadway, overturned and struck a light pole.

He died at the scene.

Witnesses told police Scism's vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed before the crash.

Scism was wearing his seatbelt, and alcohol is not suspected to be a factor, police said.

The ramp to Cool Springs Boulevard was shutdown for several hours.  Motorists were encouraged to use McEwen Drive as an alternative route.

Southbound traffic on I-65 was unaffected.
