A man was killed and a woman was injured in a crash on Interstate 24 in Antioch.

The wreck was reported around 1:15 a.m. Thursday.

Metro Nashville Police officials said 34-year-old Brenden McNiff and 28-year-old Rachel Parson were ejected from a Honda Civic after veering off the interstate, traveling about 50 yards off the roadway and coming to rest in a parking lot.

Police said they're not sure why the car left the road, but said it’s something they’re investigating. It's unclear who was driving. 

The far-right lane of I-24 westbound near exit 62, Old Hickory Boulevard, was closed for several hours for the investigation.

McNiff died at the scene. Parson was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where she is in stable condition.
