ANTIOCH, Tenn. (WTVF) — One person was killed when their SUV crashed into Mill Creek in Antioch early Monday.

The crash happened at about 1 a.m. Monday, just south of the intersection of Antioch Pike and Haywood Lane.

Metro Nashville police said it appears the driver was speeding around a corner when they went over a bridge and crashed into Mill Creek.

The person inside the SUV died at the scene. The man was later identified by police as 21-year-old Alexis Catalan.

Investigators told NewsChannel 5 there were no skid marks on the road, so it appeared the driver didn't hit the brakes. Metro police later said there was evidence of alcohol involvement at the scene of the crash. The Medical Examiner's Office will complete a toxicology report.

Antioch Pike was shut down while crews retrieved the SUV from the creek.
