A chain-reaction crash killed one person Sunday night in the southbound lanes of U.S. 75 near Mockingbird Lane, police said.
The crash happened just before 11:30 p.m. when a 25-year-old driver, who appeared to be drunk, crashed into another vehicle, Fox 4 reported. The driver then spun and hit a second car.

Four other vehicles were involved in separate crashes and caused the closure of the highway.
Fox 4 reported that police arrested the driver who appeared to be drunk.
