A single-vehicle crash on Interstate 65 Wednesday afternoon at the 204-mile marker resulted in one fatality.

Arthur Cusick, 27, of Hoover was traveling south on I-65 when his 2003 Toyota Tacoma ran off the roadway and overturned at 3:18 p.m., according to Robyn Litchfield with the Alabama Department of Public Safety.

Litchfield said Cusick was the only occupant of the vehicle.

Traffic was routed off the Interstate at Exit 205 and south on Highway 31.
