NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A motorcyclist killed in an overnight crash near Vanderbilt University's campus has been identified.

Lycus, whose driver's license listed a Pensacola, Florida, address, died at the scene.

Police said the ice formed on the roadway as the result of a water leak from a home on Blakemore Avenue.
