Police Investigate After Man Found Lying In Roadway

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A man was found lying in the roadway late Wednesday night, and police were investigating what happened to him.

Officers were called to Wedgewood Avenue near Waverly Avenue just before 10 p.m. for what was initially believed to be a pedestrian struck by a vehicle.

The 63-year-old male victim was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. His name was not immediately released.

Police said there was no evidence of a crash, and doctors said the man's injuries were not consistent with being struck by a vehicle.

An investigation was under way to determine whether the man may have been assaulted, or if perhaps the man suffered a medical episode that caused him to fall in the roadway.
