A person sustained life threatening injuries after an accident that occurred near La Vergne on Wednesday night.

Police were called about a pedestrian being struck by a car around 5 p.m. near the intersection of Murfreesboro Pike and Lavergne Couchville Pike.

Witnesses reported that the victim was "trotting" across Mufreesboro Pike when it appeared as though the wind blew his hat off of his head.

Without caution to traffic, the victim then ran back into the roadway to retrieve his hat.

A nearby driver swerved to avoid hitting him, but was unable to do so.

The victim was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where his condition has been listed as critical.

He received life threatening injuries in the accident.

The investigation is on-going.
