NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A fatal crash closed a portion of Interstate 24 in South Nashville for several hours Monday morning.
The single-vehicle crash happened around 8:30 a.m. in the eastbound lanes just after the Haywood Lane exit.
Metro police said 26-year-old Kaitlyn Cash, a Nashville woman, was killed in the crash.
Police said Cash was driving at a high-rate of speed on the left shoulder of I-24, when she sideswiped another vehicle and hit the concrete median wall.
Cash’s vehicle then crossed over all four lanes of traffic and slammed into a rock embankment, according to investigators.
No other injuries were reported.
All eastbound lanes of the interstate were closed for several hours. The road has since reopened.
