Pedestrian Hit by a Pizza Delivery Driver Dies
March 13, 2016
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Criminal charges are being evaluated against a pizza delivery driver who struck a pedestrian Saturday night on Nolensville Pike at Welshwood Drive. The pedestrian, Stephen A. Moseley, 60, of Murfreesboro Pike, died after arriving at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
The pizza delivery driver, Jay Jackson, 53, of Nashville, stopped just after the impact, but left the scene before police arrived.
The investigation shows that Jackson was traveling south on Nolensville Pike in a 1997 Chevrolet Astro Van at 7:20 p.m. when he struck Moseley. Jackson told officers that he heard something hit the van and stopped to see what it was. Jackson said he saw several people gathered around a man lying on the roadway. Jackson said he checked on the individual, who, he said, sat up and appeared to be ok. Jackson then drove back to work.
Officers found Jackson at the pizza restaurant and recorded his information. Jackson later took the evening off and drove to Vanderbilt to check on Moseley, who died while receiving treatment.
Officers have determined that Moseley, who is believed to have been drinking, was crossing Nolensville Pike in the rain more than 1,000 feet from the nearest crosswalk. Moseley was wearing dark clothing, and it is possible that Jackson did not see him. Jackson, however, left the scene of a fatal crash and failed to provide his information at the scene. The District Attorney’s Office will be consulted on charges at the conclusion of the investigation.
