Several others involved in the wreck were injured.
The Chattanooga Police Traffic Division on Friday responded to the multiple-vehicle crash with injuries.

The 62-year-old driver 1 then pulled to the emergency lane to assess the damage to the vehicle.
After assessing the damage, the Silverado then re-entered Interstate 75 in the far right lane.
Upon re-entering the roadway, the vehicle was struck by a Toyota Corolla. This impact caused the Silverado to spin to the left toward the concrete median. As it was spinning across the roadway it was struck by several more vehicles before coming to rest in the roadway.
Multiple people were transported to the hospital by Hamilton County EMS with non-life threatening injuries.
The driver of the Silverado suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead on the scene.
