LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The identity of the man killed in a wreck on Interstate 264 has been released.

The coroner identified the driver of the car involved in the single-vehicle accident as William Dee Cundiff.

According to MetroSafe, the accident happened around 2:38 p.m. in the westbound lanes of I-264, just west of Dixie Highway.

Police said Cundiff lost control of his car and slammed into a pillar. The pillar is a part of the sound barrier that is under construction in the area.

Cundiff was pronounced dead at the scene from multiple traumatic injuries sustained from the crash. An autopsy is scheduled for Saturday.

Police said speed appeared to be a factor in the crash. It is unclear if he was wearing his seatbelt.
