The victim was identified as Megan Carter, 26, of Mt. Juliet, a passenger.
Bowen said once officers arrived on the scene, they discovered that Carter had been ejected from the vehicle and was deceased. Police believe that Carter was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, he said.

Police believe that speed and alcohol were contributing factors to the crash, Bowen said, adding it is being investigated by Field Training Officer Steve Green of the Lebanon Police Departments Crash Reconstruction Team.
