NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — One person, 22-year-old Bradley Toews of Kingston Springs, was killed when his 2019 Ford Mustang crashed down an embankment early Wednesday morning.

The crash happened around 2:30 a.m. on Interstate 40 W in Davidson County near the Cheatham County line.

Toews had been driving west on I-40 just past the McCrory lane exit when he failed to navigate a curve in the roadway. He had been wearing his seatbelt.

Metro officers believe excessive speed was a factor.

Crews worked to clear the crash for several hours on Wednesday morning, at one point blocking several westbound lanes as they pulled the vehicle out of the embankment.
