MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) — A pedestrian has died after he was hit by a car on South Church Street near Warrior Drive in Murfreesboro.
It happened Wednesday night just after 6 p.m.
Murfreesboro police say the preliminary investigation shows the male victim, identified as 57-year-old Luis Machiel of Murfreesboro, was walking in the left turn lane on South Church Street when he was hit. A Ford F150 was traveling north on South Church Street and as the driver moved into the left turn lane, he hit Machiel.
The impact caused Machiel to land in the southbound center lane of traffic. A woman driving a Honda CRV couldn’t stop in time and ran over Machiel. As traffic began to slow down, a man driving a Nissan Altima switched lanes and ran over Machiel as well.
All three drivers remained at the scene.
The Murfreesboro Police Department’s Fatal Accident Crash Team (FACT) has requested an autopsy.
The investigation continues.
