NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A man in a motorized wheelchair was killed when he was struck by a SUV late Saturday night.

Metro Police said 42-year-old Roman Augustin was crossing Murfreesboro Pike near Millwood Drive just after midnight when he was hit. He was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

The driver of the Cadillac Escalade told police he didn't see the man, and investigators said it doesn't appear the victim was in a crosswalk. An officer behind the Escalade reported the vehicle was not speeding.

Evidence at the scene indicated that Augustin may have been drinking. The driver of the Escalade showed no signs of impairment. He was not injured.
