NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A car fire slowed traffic on Interstate 65 South in Davidson County late Tuesday morning.

It happened near exit 74 at Old Hickory Blvd. close to Brentwood around 11:40 a.m.

Southbound traffic was affected with one lane open to motorists. The scene cleared just before 1 p.m.

The woman who was behind the wheel told News 2 cars in front of her their brakes, so she hit hers, causing her to hydroplane.

The car ultimately caught fire before it stopped.
