The pedestrian killed just before 2 p.m. 11/21/2016 when he was struck by a hit and run driver on I-40 West near Briley Parkway is identified as Alvaro Bartlett, 20, of Elm Hill Pike.
Prior to the fatal crash, Bartlett was a passenger in his mother’s westbound 2003 Ford Focus. Letta Thomas, 36, reported that she thought she heard something fall off her car, and pulled over onto the shoulder. Bartlett then apparently got out of the vehicle and walked onto the interstate, presumably to retrieve what may have fallen off the car, when he was struck by a yellow pickup truck with grey primer spots. The driver of the pickup did not stop and continued west on I-40.
Bartlett was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he died.
Anyone with information about the driver of the pickup truck is asked to call Hit & Run investigators at 615-862-7713 or Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and qualify for a cash reward. 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.
