GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A woman is confirmed dead after the I-65 crash that caused the closure of southbound lanes at mile marker 94, near Vietnam Veterans Blvd.

Goodlettsville police said the woman - who may have been driving recklessly - crashed her vehicle into a wall on I-65 North around 6 a.m. Saturday.
