MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The westbound lanes on I-240 between Poplar Avenue and Walnut Grove Road were shutdown Tuesday morning due to a fatal crash.
According to police, three cars were involved and the impact caused one of the vehicles to flip in the center two lanes.
Memphis police detoured drivers off the interstate using the Poplar Avenue exit for several hours. At one point, traffic along I-240 was backed up all the way to the Summer Avenue exit.
Police identified the driver who was killed in the wreck as Tina Hill-Yarbrough, 20. They say she struck a traffic barrier, causing her vehicle to overturn.
The other drivers received minor injuries.
