Police in Nashville are searching for a light-colored two-door pickup truck with damage on the front-end after a hit and run accident. The truck was involved in a hit and run earlier today that left a bicyclist in critical condition. Police officials say a bicyclist was hit around 5 a.m. by a truck on Old Hickory Boulevard near Fields Drive. No witnesses have come forward to give any information on the accident that injured the bicyclist whom police identify as in his 40s and state that he was wearing reflective gear at the time of the crash. Police will continue to investigate the accident.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports 743 bicyclists were killed in motor vehicles crashes in 2013. Many of these accidents were reported as hit and runs. Bicyclists are at risk when drivers do not share the road. However, it is a cyclist right to travel with a bicycle, and they should not be punished due to distracted or negligent drivers.
