One person was killed in a wreck on Cecil Ashburn Drive Wednesday morning.
The person killed was identified by officials as Clarence Austin, 82, of Huntsville.
The wreck happened around 9:30 a.m. when a vehicle ran off the road and hit a guardrail, HEMSI spokesman Don Webster said.
Officers were directing traffic through the area, which was down to one lane. Both lanes reopened around 11:15 a.m.
There was no word on what may have caused the wreck.
