The incident happened at 11:30 p.m. Wednesday on Donelson Pike and Allen Road. 

Officials with Metro Nashville police said 54-year-old Dena Delores Jones, of Clarksville, was driving without her headlights on when she tried to make a U-turn. 

She pulled into the path of an oncoming pickup and was struck in the driver’s side of the vehicle.
