Police focus on cab logs in east Nashville hit-and-run

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Metro police are combing taxi cab logs in hopes of finding an important clue in the death of a 32-year-old east Nashville woman.

Livia Smith is believed to be the victim of a hit-and-run early last Wednesday morning.

Smith was last seen getting into a yellow van after leaving 3 Crow Bar in east Nashville.

The logs belonging to the cab company Smith is believed to have used are now being investigated.

Metro police think the cab driver could provide important information about what happened to her.

Mike Kaiser, a cab driver for a different company, told Nashville's News 2 that could be a long process.

"They [Yellow Cab Nashville] use a radio, so therefore that driver had to tell them what zone he was going to, as far as I understand how their system works, and he probably had to let them know about a drop off in doing that," Kaiser said.

"I'm sure they're probably going through the log that their dispatch keeps in order to get that information," he continued.

Kaiser said these cab logs are critical in protecting passengers and drivers.

"You can't prove to the company that you even worked or to anybody where you were while you're operating something that's got somebody else's name on it," he explained.

The cab logs include items such as time, date, fare, number of passengers, and pick-up and drop-off location.

Kaiser is required to turn the completed cab logs in to his company each week.

Many cabs in Nashville, like the one Kaiser drives, are now equipped with dashboard cameras.

The cab Smith was in, however, likely did not have one.

Anyone with information regarding the situation is urged to contact Metro police.

    (CNN) - When many people sneeze, it's instinctive for others to respond by offering a "bless you" in the person's direction.
