Hit-and-run victim found off Harding Place in south Nashville

A father of three was hit by a car and killed late Sunday night off Harding Place in south Nashville and police are still searching for the driver responsible.

Marc Pullo's body was discovered around 10:10 a.m. Monday near the intersection of Tampa Drive.

The 35-year-old was found lying on the other side of the guardrail in some brush.  His shoe was found on the opposite side.

"It appears the vehicle sideswiped the guard rail just prior to impact with the pedestrian or just after," Metro police Sgt. Bob Sheffield explained.

Police told Nashville's News 2 a receipt found at the scene indicates Pullo left the Walmart store on nearby Nolensville Pike around 11:15 p.m. Sunday.

A box of diapers for a 24-month-old child and some ready-to-eat meals were found in a bag near the man's body.

Police said Pullo had been living at the Executive Inn on Harding Place.  He leaves behind a wife and three kids.

Harding Place, where the accident occurred, does not currently have sidewalks, but they are reportedly in the works.

Police shut down the two eastbound lanes of Harding Place while they investigated and traffic was rerouted in the center turning lane.

Investigators said the suspect vehicle is either red or brown in color and may have damage to the right front and passenger side.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact police at 615-862-7738 or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
