Accident investigators have identified the pedestrian hit and killed by a cement truck Friday morning.

He is Al Star, 66, of Nashville.

Police say Star was crossing Brick Church Pike as the Nashville Ready Mix truck turned left onto Brick Church from Trinity Lane. 

The driver of the truck, a 71-year -old man, told police he saw Star but could not stop in time. 

Star was rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he died. 

 Police say there is no crosswalk at the intersection, but Star was crossing where a crosswalk would typically be.  They have not determined who had the right of way, and the investigation is ongoing. 

Neither man appeared to be impaired.
