Officials with Metro Nashville Police identified the victim as Quinton Jasko-Quarles, of Rolling River Parkway. 

Jasko-Quarles' Ford SUV veered off the roadway, at which point he tried to compensate but lost control. The vehicle overturned and he was ejected.

He was not wearing a seat belt. 

Jasko-Quarles was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he was pronounced deceased. 

A traffic investigator said a seatbelt likely would've saved his life. 

The fatal crash team shut down three lanes of I-40E near exit 204 to investigate. The roadway fully reopened around 10:30 a.m. 

Police said evidence of alcohol was found at the scene. Toxicology testing would determine whether alcohol was a factor.
