Officers Working to Positively Identify Driver in Fatal Hit & Run
June 6, 2014
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Officers investigating Monday night’s fatal hit & run collision on Clarksville Pike are continuing in their efforts to positively identify the driver of a 2000 tan Chevrolet pickup truck that killed 51-year-old Mary Katherine Frazier.
Frazier was attempting to cross Clarksville Pike at 10:59 p.m. when she was hit by the truck. She died at the scene. The driver of the truck fled.
The impact ruptured the truck’s radiator, leaving a trail of fluid that officers followed to 2813 Hydes Ferry Pike. The truck was in the driveway and had obviously been involved in a collision. The victim’s shoe was found underneath it.
The truck’s owner, Fred Edwards, 76, denied being involved in a collision. He told officers that someone must have stolen the truck from his home and then returned it. The vehicle remains impounded (a photo of the truck accompanies this news release). Edwards remains a person of interest in the investigation.
Anyone with knowledge as to who was driving the pickup truck in the 10:45 p.m.-11 p.m. timeframe Monday is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
Citizens can also send an electronic tip to Crime Stoppers by texting the word “CASH” along with their message to 274637 (CRIMES) or online at www.nashvillecrimestoppers.com. Persons who contact Crime Stoppers by phone, text or Internet can remain anonymous and qualify for a cash reward.
