A deadly crash shut down I-40 West in Hermitage.

It happened around 2:30 a.m. Sunday. A driver lost control and veered off the ramp at Central Pike and overturned on the interstate.

Police said Shawn Granato, 34, died at the scene and officers shut down the westbound lanes while crews cleared the wreckage.

Then, a semi fire shut down traffic on I-40 East. The blaze broke out around 5 a.m. Sunday near Fesslers Lane.

Right now, it's not clear how the fire started, but crews have put it out.
