CHEATHAM COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – Interstate 24 East in Cheatham County closed briefly Wednesday as crews continued their investigation into a recent deadly crash.

A 39-year-old Kentucky woman, identified as Brandi Vandiver, was killed Monday morning near New Hope Road.

Officials said Vandiver, who was driving a 2015 Toyota Corolla, slowed down due to heavy traffic before her vehicle was rear-ended by a 1998 Crown Victoria driven by Cindy Hinton.

Vandiver died shortly after her car came to a rest on the left side of the road against a guardrail.

Hinton’s car came to a rest in the grass on the right side of the road. She was injured but her condition has yet to be released.
