Fatal early morning accident on I-71

Wet roadways may have contributed to a fatal accident on Interstate 71.

This happened shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday on I-71 southbound at the Barbour Lane overpass.

Metro police say a Chevy Cavalier lost control and crashed in the median.

The driver was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say cable barriers prevented the car from hitting oncoming traffic.

Police say they hope to have the highway fully open for rush hour.
