Nashville Woman Injured In Hit-And-run Bicycle Accident
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A Nashville woman narrowly escaped death after a hit-and-run
bicycle accident near Centennial Park. Police say the woman was riding her bike home from
her workplace when she was struck by a vehicle on Poston Avenue between
West End and Centennial Park. Authorities say the driver of a tan SUV
speed away and left the woman seriously injured. Witnesses said the driver
flee the scene and many rushed to help the woman. The bicyclist suffered
serious bruising and several broken bones. The bicyclist also said that
the event was traumatic and her physical wounds are nothing compared to
her emotional wounds.
According to police, they are working with a nearby business called Kwik
Sak on West End Ave. near Centennial Park to review surveillance images.
Police say they are looking for a white man who spends time in the area
and on that day was shirtless and wearing a bandanna. Police are asking
anyone with information about the bicycle accident to please call Crime
Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
This accident and others have caused a push from locals to install cameras
at Metro Parks. Residents believe cameras installed at the parks will
increase security and accountability. City officials responded, saying
there is not enough money in the budget to install cameras at this time.
