Police said they’re working to identify a man who was killed in a crash on Interstate 65 near Brentwood.

The wreck happened around 1:30 a.m. Sunday in the northbound lanes of the interstate near Old Hickory Boulevard.

According to reports, the man was driving a black 2008 Toyota Corolla with flat tires. He drove off the road and hit a rock wall.

Authorities said the man was not wearing a seatbelt. He was ejected and died at the scene.

Police said toxicology testing would determine if drugs or alcohol were involved in the crash.

Interstate 65 was closed in that area for several hours while emergency crews investigated and worked to clear the scene.

The investigation remained ongoing. Anyone with information on this crash has been asked to call police.
