Interstate 40 east near Broadway in downtown Nashville is back open Saturday morning after a man was killed around 2 a.m.

Witnesses say the man, identified as Marc A. Exavier, 26, of Miami, stepped out of a moving Jeep Liberty traveling down I-40.

Exavier was one of five people in the Jeep. 

The others said that he was extremely intoxicated and upset when he opened the right rear door and stepped out of the moving SUV. 

He was then run over by at least one other vehicle. 

During these events, a Ford Fusion and an Isuzu Trooper, both traveling east on I-40, collided.

No one in those vehicles was critically hurt.
