A 32-year-old Nashville woman was killed in a fiery crash early Wednesday morning in southern Davidson County.
Metro police said Brandi McCoy was traveling east on Murfreesboro Pike when she traveled off the roadway at La Vergne-Couchville Pike and struck a utility pole at 2:15 a.m.
Her Ford Fusion burst into flames upon impact. Witnesses told police the flames were too powerful to attempt a rescue.
