Repeat Offender Arrest For Hit-and-run Accident
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A Nashville man has been charged in a
hit-and-run crash, and police say the driver is a habitual motor vehicle offender. The 52-year-old
man is in police custody after a traffic accident last month in which
he allegedly struck a bicyclist and then fled the scene. The bicyclist
was seriously injured.
Police have charged the Nashville man with leaving the scene of a personal
injury accident, cocaine possession and driving on a revoked license.
He is currently being held on a $12,000 bond. Police say the accident
occurred on October 7 on 28th Avenue North near Poston Avenue. A female
bicyclist was struck by a speeding gold Cadillac Escalade. Police say
he struck her from behind and drove away from the crash. Authorities say
the victim was transported to Vanderbilt University Hospital and will
recover from her injuries.With the help of witnesses, investigators located
the suspect at the Cumberland Inn on Trinity Lane. The Nashville man has
four previous DUI convictions. When he was taken into custody this week,
police said he was in possession of cocaine.
