CREATED May 7, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The woman who was killed in a fiery crash after her car struck a utility pole in Antioch early Wednesday morning has been identified.

Officials with Metropolitan Nashville Police said 32-year-old Brandi McCoy was killed when her 2014 Ford Fusion went off the roadway along Murfreesboro Pike and struck a utility pole around 2:15 a.m.

The car caught fire on impact, and McCoy died at the scene. Witnesses said she was trapped and they weren't able to get her out in time.
