MADISON, Tenn. (WTVF) — A woman was killed after being hit by a vehicle in Madison Wednesday night.

Metro Nashville Police officials say 26-year-old Danielle Decesare was hit around 10 p.m. at the intersection of Nesbitt Lane and North Graycroft Avenue.

MNPD's preliminary investigation shows that Decesare was walking east on Nesbitt Lane. She walked into the intersection but was hit by a Saturn Ion being driven by 46-year-old Charles Neely, who was traveling south on North Graycroft.

There is no crosswalk at the intersection and no traffic controls on North Graycroft. Neely told officers he did not see Decesare, who lived nearby.
