NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A man who was critically injured after being struck by a vehicle Thursday night has died.

Police said 18-year-old Logan Watkins and a minor were outside when they saw two dogs fighting across the street in the 3200 block of Towne Village Road around 9 p.m.

While attempting to break up the dogs, they were stuck by a 23-year-old woman driving a Saturn.

Watkins was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he later died.

The second victim, a 17-year-old male, sustained minor injuries.

Authorities said the driver of the vehicle initially left the scene because she was not completely aware of what had occurred.

She drove to her parents' home where she called police.

No charges have been filed. The investigation is ongoing.
